Why Was Lenny Dykstra Searching a Dumpster Behind a Jersey Mike’s Subs?

Let’s check in on former Phillies outfielder Lenny Dykstra.


Well here’s a story on NJ.Com describing how Nails lost his dentures and had to go search the dumpster behind a Jersey Mike’s Subs in Linden, where he lives.

Writes Athony Attrino:

“The bread is so hard on those subs,” Dykstra told NJ Advance Media on Tuesday. “I took my teeth out and put them in a napkin, folded it up and forget them there.”

Dykstra left the restaurant which is about two miles from his home and later realized he’d forgotten his teeth in the napkin.

“When I went back, the workers said they threw all the napkins in the garbage,” Dykstra said. “I told them there was no f—- way I was leaving without my f—- teeth.”

The dentures are specially made with bone marrow and valued at $80,000, he said.

Hang on –

Lenny has dentures that are worth $80 grand? That’s wild.

I guess he chronicled most of this online, which I didn’t even notice until now. Those video clips after the jump:

Of course a guy named “Big John” is helping him out.

I appreciate how Lenny refers to himself as “Nails,” and in the third person.

I appreciate Lenny tagging Bill Gates and Warren Buffett in that last tweet.

“I got my teeth. That’s all I give a fuck about. Nails out, on Father’s Day. Check it.”

    Remember when Dykstra and Mitch Williams had that roast? And they both just got drunk and embarrassed themselves and everyone involved?

    Boy I sure wish I had that on DVD.

  • I can tell you this much Nails has taken many dumps in many dives June 19, 2019 at 4:12 pm

    But The Great One wasn’t too happy to learn that Nails took a dump on the carpet in his mansion. Imagine when Janet had to come in and clean it up. She wore a Level One hazmat suit and still had to notify the CDC on containment procedures.
