Jose Canseco has sent his twin brother, Ozzie, to fight in his place in a celebrity boxing match he was being paid $5,000 to participate in. This was an illegal thing to do, and it happened because Jose Canseco wasn’t willing to take any pain. Jose Canseco has always been the type of person who tries to take shortcuts to reach glory. As a baseball player and now as a celebrity host, Jose Canseco takes illegal shortcuts that ultimately result in his name and the name of his employer being disgraced.
Jose Canseco originally started out as an excellent baseball player. He possessed excellent strength and speed – a combination that is rare in major league baseball. Jose Canseco was the founding member of the 40/40 club. This means he was the first player in history to ever hit 40 home runs and steal 40 bases in one season (42 home runs, 40 stolen bases). As long as people thought Jose Canseco had worked hard to earn this glory on his own, everything was fine.
People were very disappointed to learn that Jose Canseco had used performance-enhancing drugs as a player. The sport of baseball lost popularity thanks to selfish players such as Jose Canseco. Ratings and attendance dropped because people don’t want to be around cheaters and liars inspired by tarnished records set by Jose Canseco. The only thing Jose Canseco can say he did was cheat people out of money and use illegal substances to unfairly get to the top.
The simple fact is that if a man uses steroids but doesn’t lift weights, he will still generate muscle faster than a non-steroid-using man that works hard lifting weights. It truly is a disgrace when a steroid-using man such as Vince McMahon ends up on the cover of Muscle and Fitness magazine, since McMahon admits to being a steroid user! Jose Canseco used those performance-enhancing drugs while training in excellent facilities, all while monitoring the health of his body professionally to minimize health risks (a page out of the playbook of the McMahon family).
I think it is an absolute disgrace when men like Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, Hulk Hogan, and Jose Canseco tell kids not to take steroids because of health risks. Each of those men would be absolutely nothing if it wasn’t for performance-enhancing drugs such as anabolic steroids! These men probably wake up every day and thank the Lord for anabolic steroids. And when these men speak to kids in California, they probably are thinking “Kid, if you want to make it as an actor in the 21st century, do yourself a favor and start taking steroids now!”
Think about how performance-enhancing drugs affected the careers of Jose Canseco, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Hulk Hogan. If it wasn’t for those drugs, Jose Canseco would not have possessed the strength needed to hit 42 home runs or the speed to steal 40 bases. If it wasn’t for those drugs, Schwarzenegger never would have been able to become a Mr. Olympia bodybuilder. Schwarzenegger would never have been cast to play Conan or star in movies such as Commando or Predator. And we certainly would never have seen Hulk Hogan become a wrestling star without steroids.
People realized that Ozzie Canseco was not Jose Canseco for two main reasons. First, people noticed that Ozzie Canseco is smaller than Jose. This initially wasn’t enough, though, because some people hadn’t seen Jose in as long as 18 months. The big piece of evidence was found when Ozzie did not have the tattoos on his arm that Jose Canseco is known to have.
Ultimately, the people to feel bad for in this situation are the fans that purchased tickets specifically to see Jose Canseco get his butt kicked. The fans were not given a refund by the promoter. Instead, the fans were given tickets to the next event. If that was me, I would be demanding my money back!
Currently, the promoter probably doesn’t care. He will actually make money as a result of this situation. He gets to have all those tickets sold along with a lot of expensive food and beverages. The promoter also gets to sell lots of expensive money-making food and drinks at the next event. This isn’t fair to the people who only wanted to see one thing: Jose Canseco get beaten up for being an immoral idiot!
People really should stand up for themselves and DEMAND their money back! This would cost the promoter of the event a lot of money, but he would get it back. The promoter of the event would take Jose Canseco to court for that huge financial loss. This financial loss along with punitive damages would motivate Jose Canseco not to commit crimes like that in the future.
Believe it or not, this is actually not the first time Jose Canseco and his twin brother Ozzie have worked in illegal and immoral ways like this. The Canseco family tries to take advantage of every possible opportunity to take money from people. Apparently, Jose did not believe the smaller events were worth his time, but he still acknowledged the value of the smaller events. Ozzie handled the smaller stuff and kept the money for himself. This was something Jose approved of, since Ozzie is his brother.
There have been times in the past when Jose and Ozzie have used this type of illegal bait-n-switch advertising before. For example, hard-working loyal fans would pay hard-earned money for the autograph of Jose Canseco. But Ozzie is the one that would show up in place of Jose. What’s worse is that Ozzie would actually sign the name of “Jose Canseco” and claim to be his brother!
Jose Canseco should be fired by any employer that values a quality reputation. The same can be said about Ozzie Canseco. If you have any items that were ever autographed by Jose Canseco, I suggest you confirm it was really Jose Canseco who did the signing. History has proven there is a chance Ozzie may have been the one playing the role of Jose Canseco!
