Dykstra v. Dykstra

You know you’re not livin’ right when your own brother sues you:

Former professional baseball player Lenny “Nails” Dykstra refused to pay his brother a 10 percent stake in car wash partnerships that the outfielder sold for more than $50 million, Kevin Dykstra claims in Superior Court.

Lenny allegedly convinced Kevin to give up a career as a major league umpire to manage three California-based car wash partnerships in exchange for a share of Lenny’s 75 percent interest in the stores.

I don’t remember Kevin Dykstra ever actually making the Majors as an umpire, so I Googled him and all I could find were references to him as a minor league ump. Found this, though. Kevin’s comments after Len Dykstra’s DUI accident back in 1991:

“It’s probably the worst I’ve ever seen him,” Kevin, a 23-year-old minor league umpire, said from his home in Florida. “He’s my favorite player, my hero. And I always thought, just like him, that nothing could happen to him. When I first saw him, I couldn’t believe it. He was in so much pain.”

Kevin Dykstra says he noticed something else, too: “I could just tell the way he acted that he’s gotten, I don’t know, a little softer.”

Revenge is a dish best served cold, Kevin. You called your big brother “soft” eighteen years ago. You thought he wasn’t paying attention, but now you know he was. I hope that comment was worth it to you, dear brother, for now it has cost you millions!! Bwahahahahah!!!

    Can the brand with the three stripes bring the same quality to their smart device accessories that they do their sneakers and active wear? That’s what we wanted to know when we first heard Adidas Originals would be getting in to the smartphone case business.
