Jose Canseco is claiming that Eastbound and Down is based on him. Hahaha. On the one hand, whoops, that is what you want credit for. On the other hand, that is a total Kenny Powers move, so fair enough.
Rob Dibble disagrees.
As does John Rocker
It’s totally John Rocker
Is John Rocker still our boyfriend? I have trouble keeping up since we’re so promiscuous
Well, as long as you’re not black.
Also Kyle Farnsworth. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyle_Farnsworth#Incidents
I would say that Kenny Powers is a mix of John Rocker and Mitch “Wild Thing” Williams (the closer of the 93 Phillies World Series team) He’s definitely got the temper/crazy persona and even had a sweet sweet mullet.
Rob Dibble’s girlfriend has to have quick hands.
If the K-Swiss fits…
Canseco is right. But to be fair we are all right. Kenny Powers is based on the best in all of us…
When reached for comment, Raphael Palmero insisted that, “Nothing — NOTHING — has ever been based on me. PERIOD!”
I know it’s not the appropriate forum, but Roy Halladay! Holy Cow!
No doubt — I saw that on Mike and Mike this morning and, even though I’m a Braves fan, I had to feel good for the guy.
Roy Halladay’s resurgence will top my list of overlooked stories on Videogum in 2010.
Jose Canseco is a regular at my weekly cockfighting league, so maybe there is an ounce of truth to this.
But, you guys, he saved that lady’s baby! And her cat!
Also, did anyone notice that he called the show “Easr bound and out”? I’m having a good time imagining him sitting there, needle sticking out of his arm, drool puddling in his lap, watching the show and thinking to himself. “Hey! He play baseball. I play baseball. He no want Mexico famous. I be Mexico. That me! On TV! CANSECO MAD!!!”
