BuzzFeed asks José Canseco to Nerd Prom; Canseco hopes to meet Dick Lugar there!/McCollumAshley/status/304450077043347456


José Canseco has been trolling for an invitation to the 2013 Tiger Beat Banquet, er, White House Correspondents Dinner since last year. He even offered Michelle Obama a hug in exchange for a ticket. Because who wouldn’t want to witness our esteemed media squeeing like Twi-hards and tossing their panties at celebrity crushes?

José is also dying for a chance to meet Dick Lugar.

@arimelber @senatorleahy @adamgreen I would really like to have lunch with Dick Lugar can you set up a lunch for the four of us buddy?
