Canseco’s sorry?

Using everyone’s favorite sports and apology venue, Jose Canseco told A&E he’s sorry for naming names. Or so he says. I’m not really sure what to believe when it comes to this guy — I used to think he was the greatest thing since sliced bread when he an McGwire tore up the Bay Area. Now – I’m not sure. While I have no doubt that he was involved with steroids and has probably destroyed his body as much as you can short of using a blunt instrument, fire, a wild animal or something mechanical, I do wonder about his regret.

I’m inclined to think there’s some sort of profit motive at work here – although I’m not sure what it is. Maybe he’s just keeping his name out there in hopes that someone sees some redeeming quality in him that can be monetized.

Looking at Canseco now can become a test of our own view of other people – I want to think the best of him, believe he’s sincere and accept his apology. But on the other hand, given that I don’t know him, have never met him, and really don’t have any reason to think he’s any more sincere about this than anything else, I do question it.

I guess we’ll all just have to wait and see.
