Alas, doesn’t quite scan: still, Buzzfeed asked… oh, let Fishbowl DC tell the story:
Last night just before the clock struck midnight, BuzzFeed had an important flash of thought — why not ask José Canseco, a former Major League Baseball outfielder who partakes in some of the funniest online meltdowns, to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner? Not to be forgotten was this R.I.P. love note to the very much alive Al Gore: “al gore was a head of his time .i miss him rest in peace buddy hug for u”
Canseco said yes – and if this actually happens and he’s in there tweeting at #NERDPROM, I pledge to take back the last two rude things that I’ve said about Buzzfeed and allow them to pick one additional rude thing for retraction. Because if it happens, this will be EPIC.
PS: Scoff at Canseco all you like. I follow him for the trainwrecks, myself. So do almost 500K other people, which means that Canseco’s doing something right in Twitter.
