José Canseco Is Dressing Up Like a Woman for a Week to Support Caitlyn Jenner

"I'm talking about full everything."

After pissing off the entirety of Major League Baseball with a tell-all book about steroid use in 2005, getting busted for smuggling fertility drugs across the border in 2008, and penning a VICE column for us, José Canseco is gearing up for his latest fiasco: an all-out, weeklong stint as a woman.

The 250-pound, 6'4" black sheep of baseball told the New York Daily News he'd be hiding his probably very large and very veiny penis under a skirt in support of Caitlyn Jenner's transition into womanhood.


"In the very beginning, I didn't understand it, so I was kind of like, against it," he said. "Once I watched it more and more, and realized what it really entailed, what he was going through, I started supporting him."

Canseco used the wrong pronoun there, which is already a pretty good indicator that his decision to cross-dress for a week is more of a weird PR move than a heartfelt display of support. He's also broadcasting his seven days in drag on an internet reality show called Spend a Day with José, where you can watch the goliath play sports like golf and softball in a super cute top.

When the Daily News asked Canseco what, exactly, dressing up as a woman was going to accomplish, he sort of just repeated that he was doing it.

"Once it's completely done, I will be dressing up and living as a woman for a week," he said. "I'm talking about full everything."
