A Bit on How Jose Canseco Gave The Finger to the Public


Jose Canseco, the controversial former American League slugger, once again has created headlines.  Last month, the 50 year old Canseco shot his middle finger off as he was cleaning his 45 caliber Remington. Canseco appeared emotional over the accident in an interview with Inside Edition.

Canseco had the digit surgically re-attached. But during a poker tournament, Canseco’s finger fell off as he was tossing his cards on the table.   Rather than wallow in tragedy, Canseco adopted a farcical entrepreneurial tact.

Canseco took to Twitter to auction off his severed middle finger along with the firearm.  Of course, E-Bay does not allow auctions of firearms or body parts, but Canseco’s auction offering is telling.

A Bit on the San Fran Radio Ban of the Lorde Song Royals During World Series


Lorde on Royals
After the San Francisco Giants beat the St. Louis Cardinals to clinch their right to represent the National League in the 2014 Major League Baseball World Series, two Bay area radio stations made waves.  Both KFOG and KOIT announced bans on playing the minimal art pop song “Royals” by New Zealand chanteuse Lorde.  This ersatz outrage is a silly attempt to generate civic pride for the a World Championship Series with two wildcard teams.
 
During interviews last year, Lorde became inspired to compose “Royals” in a half-hour writing session after seeing a photo of George Brett signing baseballs.
 

Actor Paul Rudd Jocularly Celebrates KC Royals Advance to World Series


The Kansas City Royals swept the Baltimore Orioles in the 2014 American League Championship Series, breaking a World Series drought of 29 years. Royals fans were ecstatic at the triumph by the Kings of Kaufman Stadium.
 
Actor Paul Rudd was one of the exhuberant fans on hand four Game 4 celebrating the Royals’ victory.  During an interview with KMBC-TV Johnny Kane, Rudd could not contain his joy.
 


 
Rudd got so carried away that he joked about a kegger at his mom’s house to mark the victory.
 
Rudd has deep ties to the Kansas City area, having gone to high school in Shawnee Mission (Kansas) and also attended the University of Kansas.
