Jose Canseco = Giants' Goalposts

For those of you who don't remember Vai Sikahema, he was best-known for his assault on the goalposts at Giants Stadium in a game that I was actually at back in the early 90's. The Giants were up 20-0, and the Birds ended up winning 47-34, in large part behind the momentum-shifting punt return by Vai Sikahema.

Well, Vai and Jose Canseco went head-to-head in a celebrity boxing match in Atlantic City this past Saturday night. Canseco is 6'4" 245 lbs, compared to Sikahema's 5'9" 205. And yet, Sikahema showed his true Philly colors, and made the roid-raging pretty boy look like a rag doll. A proud moment for Philadelphians everywhere.

You're right: it's not only sports, it's Philly sports :) But, SO COOL to see what you're doing with it. Have fun! Good luck!!

I can't believe Jose actually thought he'd stand a chance against a former Golden Gloves boxer, Vai coulda been 100 lbs. soaking wet and he still woulda crushed him!!
