Jose Canseco is selling afternoons at his house to children for $2,500 (or $3,500 to bring an adult along). "Round trip limousine service from local airport included." Act now -- Canseco's free time may be running out.

Who in their right mind would send their kid to spend time with Canseco whether it is free or not?

Wasn't he rumored to have dated Madonna for awhile? "Hey kid, come check out these videos..."

Who in their right mind would send their kid to spend time with Canseco whether it is free or not? Probably the ones who couldn't get their kids in for a bed romp with Michael Jackson.

That was my question too. Both sides of this transaction are creeping me out -- who would make or take that offer?

Children under 17 years old probably don't even remember Jose Canseco back in his prime. What makes this guy think that there are kids out there who even know who he is? I mean, Canseco was most remembered as an Oakland A, back in the mid to late 80s... almost 15 years ago. Fifteen year-old baseball fans might know of Jose Canseco and what he's accomplished, but I doubt there are kids that age who are actual fans... I think the steriods have not only increased his physique, but also inflated his head. I don't know what is more sad... that Jose Canseco would resort to whoring himself to make some money or the fact that there will be someone who actually takes him up on the offer...

I would send my boy to see Jose, if I had one. I don't think I have the knowledge to properly teach my son: How to shoot up 'roids without leaving those ugly marks How to smash up your wife's $100K car with your own $100K car to relieve stress How to bounce fly balls over a 10-foot fence using just your skull The fine art of taking what once was a pretty respectable career and turning it into a complete fucking shambles
