Jose Canseco speaks with This Hour Has 22 Minutes star Mark Critch (Handout photo)
Former Toronto Blue Jays slugger Jose Canseco is still talking about running for Mayor of Toronto – at least to This Hour Has 22 Minutes.
I’m told Canseco is on the CBC comedy show tonight (Feb. 19, 2013) at 8:30 p.m. talking about why his mayoralty run would be a “grand slam”.
Canseco made headlines in January when he openly talked about running to replace current Toronto Mayor Rob Ford. Although Canseco can’t run for mayor unless he moves to Toronto, he still takes swings at Ford – he calls him Rod rather than Rob – on his Twitter account from time to time.
In a promo clip of tonight’s 22 Minutes episode it looks like Canseco will take a couple more whacks at Ford. No really, he’s going to hit a baseball with Ford’s picture on it (see photo below). Be curious to hear what Ford thinks of that.
Should be worth watching just to see whether this sketch is a comedic home run or it strikes out.
