If you need something to do with a spare $12.95 tonight, here's an idea: You can watch Jose Canseco fight Danny Bonaduce on pay-per-view on the Internet.
There's a sentence I can't believe I typed. Here's the Associated Press story:
NEW YORK — Jose Canseco might want to dust off that muscled-up "Bash Brother" moniker one more time.
He needs a colorful nickname for his introduction as he enters a boxing ring tonight for a three-round celebrity match against Danny Bonaduce, a child star-turned-radio host. Before Canseco tries to pummel a Partridge, he wants a flashy name that fits the oversized personality of the former steroid-fueled slugger for the Oakland Athletics.
"The Destroyer," Canseco suggested.
Canseco was a destroyer of reputations to some major-leaguers named in "Juiced," his 2005 book on steroid use in the game.
"I'm the bad guy no matter where I go," he said.
Canseco, 44, continues to seek the spotlight. The man who was once among the most feared hitters in baseball finds himself training to drill a D-list celebrity at an ice-skating rink in Aston, Pa.
Canseco has written two books, been in two reality shows and is taking his second swing at celebrity boxing; he was embarrassed by ex-Philadelphia Eagle Vai Sikahema in his debut. The 6-foot-4, 260-pound Canseco admits he needs the money.
The 5-6, 180-pound Bonaduce, who played Danny Partridge on the "The Partridge Family," hosts a radio show in Philadelphia.
"Let me be honest with you right now: I am scared," Bonaduce said on Howard Stern's satellite-radio show.
