The Day a Guy Named “Nails” Came Gunning for Me…
Lenny Dystra was a center fielder in the 1986 World Series Champion of New York Mets.
He was so tough that the Mets fans started calling him Nails. He played fearlessly and had a “hard nose” attitude toward life.
After Nails retired, he became a member of TheStreet.com, and started endorsing an options strategy. I didn’t like the strategy because I thought it was irresponsible and misleading…
And I said so as a financial journalist.
Needless to say, Nails was pissed.
There were a few months there where we went back and forth,, and he made it known that he wanted to take a shot at me.
I wasn’t really that worried because I figured it was just bluster…
Until he showed up at my office one day. He was steaming mad and spoiling for a fight.
Just to be clear, I’m no sissy. But I also had no interest in trying to fight a former professional athlete in my office!
Luckily, cooler heads prevailed and we were able to bury the feud. I still didn’t like his strategy, but we agreed to disagree about it.
All’s well that ends well.
To Your Success,
PS. I almost forgot, you can find an options strategy that is responsible and completely transparent here. Check it out. Talk soon!
