Lenny Dykstra's Plane Chilling at Hopkins

A couple of weeks ago my buddy Paul Lukas of Uni Watch and ESPN Page 2 fame was in town to cover the National Sports Collector Convention. (You can find my photo gallery of the event here and Paul's roundup here.)

After perusing through the hordes of collectibles at the IX Center, we adjourned to Prosperity Social Club for some dinner and socializing among Uni Watch readers. One of the readers who showed up happened to tell us that Lenny Dykstra's repossessed plane was in storage at Hopkins, and had been since the fateful day when the former ballplayer's air travel was grounded because of, um, some financial difficulties. And stupidity. Don't forget the stupidity.

The reader drew us this map that shows the plane is just sitting there right off Route 237 by the airport. I forgot about it and haven't ventured down to take a picture yet, but if anyone's down that way and feels like snapping a shot, I think the sporting world would be much obliged.
