Jose Canseco forgets how to spell his own name
By David Hill
The years have not been kind to Jose Canseco. The former Oakland A’s superstar has gone from being the one person to tell the truth of the Steroid Era to being a parody of himself. At this point, he has become a running punchline and does not even realize it.
He may well have hit his low point on Tuesday. In an attempt to plug his car wash/petrol station, Canseco managed to misspell his own name.
Jose Canseco forgets how to spell his name
We get it – everyone makes mistakes on social media. Twitter does not have the ability to edit posts, so unless you catch the error in real time, you cannot fix it. And we would tend to believe that is the case here…except that Canseco misspelled his name last week as well.

It is not as though Canseco has to remember the spelling of his name. It is right there in his Twitter handle, so if he was unsure of how to spell Canseco, he could have just looked at his name staring right at him. Maybe that ball off of Carlos Martinez‘s bat hit him in the head even harder than we had previously thought.
At this point, there is a bit of a low bar when it comes to Canseco on Twitter. Between his ruminations on time travel, his claims to be friends with space aliens and Bigfoot, as well as his one-sided feud with Alex Rodriguez, he is generally a go-to for unintentional comedy. He is as good at that as he was in hitting homers during his prime.
But there are times where one has to feel bad for him as well. He is seemingly unaware that he is the butt of his own joke, one that he does not even know exists. Because of that, he keeps on going, tweeting away as we wait for his latest ridiculous statement.
This time, Jose Canseco did not say anything outlandish. Instead, he proved completely incapable of spelling his own name.
