Takes one to know one, amirite?!
Ah, Dykstra. Dykstra, Dykstra, Dykstra.
There are a few patron saints I recognize in sports and life. They are, in no particular order, Lil Wayne, Jose Canseco, Ron Artest, Gilbert Arenas, Alex Ovechkin, Allen Iverson, Zooey Deschanel, Pete Maravich, Kevin Durant, Mike Tyson, Cam Newton, Alison Brie, Rex Ryan, Jay-Z, and like a hundred others. And Lenny Dykstra, obviously. Definitely Lenny Dykstra.
He's a fountain of home-spun insanity, and no matter how many times he goes bankrupt, it just keeps on flowing. So obviously, when he commented on Charlie Sheen, I had to take a look.
Radar.com has the "exclusive" comments:
Charlie is a rock star, he's perfect, and he's a f**king genius. I went to his house for the party and it was great! We're heading out to a yacht right now. Charlie is a smart guy, he is 3 steps ahead of everyone, I can't keep up with him.
Is this better than the time he described himself as "a lightning rod for money"? When he told a radio host, "after we’re done talking today when you’re walking to your car you’ll probably find 100 bucks." Is it better than the time he told CNBC, "I'm not here to make money, I'm here to make history"? No, probably not.
But still. Any excuse to think about Dykstra is good enough for me. And more importantly, can't we all just take a second to imagine what Charlie and Dykstra talked about on that yacht? Whatever was talked about, it was an afternoon filled with f**king genius, I'm sure.
