Retired MLB star Jose Canseco lost a finger (again) during a poker tournament last week.

In Canseco’s case, he seems to have lost the same finger for the 2nd time in about a month, something that few people (with any luck) will ever get to experience.
In belated October, Canseco had been in the news for inadvertently shooting himself in the hand. Based on Canseco, the incident happened while he was cleansing their gun in his kitchen. He finished up shooting his little finger, which then needed to be surgically reattached. It seems some surgeons are more skilled than others at digital fixes, though.

‘ I was playing in a poker competition last night and my finger fell of,’ Canseco tweeted. ‘Someone took a video clip of it.’
Fortunately, Canseco didn’t post that video, though there was at least one supposed image of his finger before it dropped off. As gruesome as the event may however sound, Canseco said that this result may have been inevitable from the time he shot himself.
