Jose Canseco says re-attached finger fell off during poker game

It's one thing to have a losing hand during a poker game, but what about anteing up one of your fingers?

Only about a month after doctors reattached Jose Canseco's middle finger, when he shot it off by accident, the former baseball star has revealed that the sewn on digit once fell off — during a game of poker.

The disgraced MLB star lost his finger when his weapon discharged while he was cleaning it in his Las Vegas home last month and he tweeted about it constantly.

Canseco expressed some deep-felt emotion during interviews following the freak incident, but it seems he found his latest incident "kinda funny."  

"OK well I might as well tell you," a tweet from Canseco said. "I was playing in a poker tournament last night and my finger fell off. Someone took a video of it.'"

Then he described how someone had given his agent a video of the incident and admitted he thought it was entertaining.  

Canseco also gave his followers the gory details and started expressing doubts about whether doctors should have put his finger back in place because he felt like it was falling off. 

"My finger should have been amputated from the beginning. It was very loose with no bone to connect was also smelling really bad,'"he added.

Following the October gun incident, he broke down while speaking about the ordeal.

"At first I heard it go off and I actually grabbed the gun and put it on the table," he recalled.

"(I) thought nothing had happened. Then I look at my hand and my finger’s blown off."

Now, according to Canseco, the video is apparently out there:

And the saga continues...
