Lenny Dykstra Bought Wayne Gretzky’s House

Lenny-Dykstra-Bought-Wayne-Gretzky’s-House Former baseball player and current financial non-genius Lenny Dykstra had an unhealthy obsession with hockey great Wayne Gretzky's house. He told friends repeatedly that it was the best home he had ever laid his eyes on and wanted it badly for himself. So badly, in fact, that Dykstra offered Gretzky $17.5 million for the house, which was way over value.

Dykstra didn’t get to hang onto the house forever, though. During bankruptcy hearings, Dykstra attempted to steal some of the items in his foreclosed home, so that the bank couldn’t get to them first. That little act of self robbery ended up getting Dykstra six months in jail.
