Default Mancave/TV room almost complete

Last November I started a thread about what I was going to do w/ my winnings if I won my 2 fantasy leagues. Well I won one and came in third in the other (damn you Jamal Charles, or I would have won them both).

http://www.texanstalk.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=102999

So it's still a work in progress (need some more sports/cars/Jeep memorabilia). And I currently have seating for 7 but I'm looking at other options to increase. The TVs are: 1-55 inch, 2-50 inch and 1-40 inch (I didn't get the Seiki). Like I said it's a work in progress but so far I'm pretty please with how it has turned out.

My Dad and I have been season ticket holders since day one (we still are) but he's had some health issues lately and has not felt like going to the games. So this will help lessen the blow of not attending the games, but he and I (and as many neighbors/friends we can squeeze in) will be watching together.

What I want to know is where his toys are. I can't imagine dedicating a garage to this although I think it's really cool.

I only bought two new ones and none of them have any bells and whistles (no smart TV, 3d, etc):

the top TV is Insignia 55" - LED - 1080p - 120Hz - HDTV and I'm really pleased w the picture quality especially for the price.

the bottom right is a Samsung 51" plasma which looked like dog crap in the store until I adjusted the settings. It was on sale for about $300.

The old ones are:
the bottom left is a 50" Samsung plasma which is at least 5 years old and still running strong. Also it is built like a tank. When I was installing the TVs all of the other TVs I could pretty much handle by my self; not this one.

the bottom middle is a 40" Westinghouse LCD.

All of the TVs are connected to Directv.


toys? do you mean other than the TVs

Thanks. This isn't my garage; it is a game room upstairs that my daughter kinda had free rein over (and wasn't real thrilled about my plan originally)

Nice!

Now you just need some Texans pillows and throws and a couple of JJ Watt Fatheads for the walls.

You know, the essentials.

I figured you were talking bikes when you said garage.
I must confess that paintball gear or crawfish fixin' gear didn't enter my mind at all

I'm just interested - for the sake of this convo - in outfitting the man-cave

Speaking of cars I'm on the hunt for a 650i ragtop...
not new, I ain't rich; but something stylish for my retirement road trips.

Dude if you're retiring go classic. You aren't carrying kids.




Heavy was invented by BMW. Rails were invented by Porsche.

That's not true. Trust me. I've been there. I've had two bicycles in one. Cop who pulled me on the way to Beaumont just chuckled and walked away.

Maybe there is a god. It's game day and I can smell bbq from my balcony.
