    Just doing my weekly (sometime daily) search for Mario stuff on ebay and came across his Corvette for $80,000.

    Someone log into their Ebay account, go to "Ask seller a question" and ask him to make an account on TexansTalk so that he can talk to us!

    That would be too cool.

    :homer: :texflag:

    P.S. - I would love to have that ride.

    Standing at the player tunnel in Dallas couple of weeks ago one of the Cowboys drove up in a black Z06 convertable same wheels as Mario's, his plate said ( SACKED )
    That was cool!

    How about that pad in the picture ? Almost looks like some place in
    "The Woodlands", but don't think Texans players usually live up that way ?

    He lives in the Memorial area. He bought Priscilla Slade's house, the one TSU paid for the landscaping on.

    I don't think he lives there anymore and I almost 100% certain that he sold the house last year for a profit.

    Yeah, he built a new house in the same area I believe. A buddy of mine did the a/c work at his new pad, said he had a MONSTER garage, required like 6 1/2 ton a/c units just for the garage.

    It says bidding has ended and there were 0 bids. Maybe he had a "buy it now" option.

    My buddy has his garage AC'ed out too. He has a classic Mustang and doesnt want the humidity jacking it up. I've thought about too but I think my truck can handle the humidity.

    He lives in Sherwood Forest Sub. in a 14,000 sg ft house he bought in 1997. It was not a new build so he must have had the garage rebuilt and a/c'd. It might explain why his house shows twice the livable space as all his rich a$$ neighbors.
