Jose Canseco Shot off His Middle Finger

It's kind of scary, but it's also more or less exactly what you'd bet Jose Canseco would do. The former A's slugger shot off his middle finger while cleaning his handgun at his Las Vegas home.

We hope it wasn't his Twittering hand—Canseco and his girlfriend have two of the most consistently entertaining accounts around.

Canseco was rushed to the hospital, where he underwent surgery. He is now at home resting. No word on whether the finger was able to be saved. A police investigation confirmed that the shooting was an accident.

Sadly, though he did do a round of Celebrity Apprentice, Canseco has still never been given his own reality television show.
