GOOD NEWS for the obscenely rich! In April former Mets and Phillies hero Lenny Dykstra is launching The Players Club, a magazine for pro athletes. The goal is to provide them with advice, resources and branded financial plans so that after retirement they can, as the mag's motto puts it, KEEP LIVING THE DREAM.

7. Peace of mind, bro!
One day Lenny hopes that the Players Club's financial arm will help meet all your needs: jet, real estate, credit card, home loans, insurance, nutrition, a Spanish concierge, you name it. Of course, Lenny's people will take a nice cut (roughly a $550,000 commission for every $3 million in insurance premiums), but that's not your concern. "Not to be mushy or gay," Nails says, "but this Players Club is going to have a direct effect on millions and millions of people's lives."

Yeah, and one life in particular.
