This morning, Rob Thomas accidentally removed a chunk of his left hand's middle finger while preparing breakfast. Jose Canseco accidentally removed a chunk of same with a handgun in October, and shortly after Thomas' mishap, the legendary ballplayer took to Twitter to commiserate.

At the end of a dark and trying year for Canseco, Thomas, and the rest of America, a display of affection and acknowledgement of shared struggle like this one can go a long way. Hug for u @JoseCanseco.
