"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice


The good folks at Deadspin have reprinted Bruce Buschel’s 1993 profile of Lenny “Nails” Dykstra. The story originally appeared in Philadelphia Magazine and was later collected in The Best American Sports Writing 1994.

I read this yesterday via Deadspin. What a nut. The thought of losing 40 large in a sitting is incomprehensible to me. I think the most I've ever lost at a casino is $50 and that chaps my ass.
My wife had a massive crush on Dykstra back in the day. I like to remind her of this often. : )
