    Dykstra takes the place of the White House party crasher, dude. This is not from The Onion.

    Gotta go with Canseco in this one. Longer reach and height advantage. i guess Lenny could tie him up inside and work the body though.

    Yeah, but did you see the last time Canseco participated in a celebrity boxing match? He didn't want to actually get hit. I can see Dykstra going in there ready to get bloody. Dykstra in a first-round TKO. Round 3 at the latest.

    A TKO is going to have to involve head shots. Unless they let Lenny stand on a chair I'm not sure he can reach that high.

    Prior to an Arkansas Travelres minor league game last summer, Canseco and Gary Hogan, the 60-year-old assistant AD at Arkansas-Little Rock, had a "boxing match" to raise money for charity. Actually, Hogan was raising money for charity. Canseco was raising money for Canseco. The four-round fiasco was pretty boring, with Hogan getting the win by decision, 39-37. Canseco just played around for four rounds, and gave Hogan a bloody lip early in the fight.

    Here are highlights...such as they are.

    A TKO will only require Dykstra to swing within three feet of Canseco and he'll go down like Lindsay Lohan desperate for some smack.


    Skip to 1:20 in the video.

    The only real question is whether is Dykstra will be facing Jose or Ozzie.

    ELAINE: You mean in a real Fight Fight?

    JERRY: Mono a Baldo.

    ELAINE: George.

    GEORGE: AH-HA!

    JERRY: Why?

    ELAINE: George fights dirty.

    JERRY: Really? What would you do?

    GEORGE: Pull hair, Poke eyes, Groin stuff. Whatever I gotta do.

    Saw someone on Twitter, might have been Jones, describe this as one step ahead of bumfights.

    Given their tax filings it already is a bum fight
