Here's a pic of the house. It's not "quite" finished being built yet.

1) My reclining couch goes into this room rather than the normal living room since I'll most likely be in there more than my living room.

2) College-sized fridge. During football season I would just pack a cooler full of beer and sit in front of the TV and watch so I would never have to get up.

3) Computer of course.

4) Biggest TV that we own of course.

5) This is my master stroke of brilliance which I think might be pretty bad ass for old school fools such as myself. I've seen on eBay that I can basically buy every console system ever made and hook it up to my TV through a Pelican adapter console. It allows for 7 RCA/S-Video/Component hook ups with 2 optical jacks. I plan on hooking up an NES, SNES, Sega Genesis, Dreamcast, Xbox and PS2. I plan on buying wireless controllers for all systems to keep the clutter down. I found I can buy most of those consoles for about $200 total (excluding the PS2 and Xbox). I'm also getting that thing for the SNES that allows me to play my old Gameboy games on it.

6) Later comes the huge home theater system with which to hear the original Super Mario Bros. in all it's glory.

7) She already agreed to the burgundy paint, so that's a go. I'm going to buy the team picture every year and frame each one along the border of the room.

I'm pumped about this idea and will put pics up as I progress.
Ok you have the fridge so you don't have to get up but after a while all those beers?

We got all three and a poster of FedEx at the mall in one of those print/painting/frame shops. I can't remember exactly how much they cost (maybe around $50+ w/o frames).

My dad and I (I never plan on moving out) are filling our basement with different sports posters and whatnot. We've got the SB posters, an awesome drawing of Cooley, Moss, Portis, Brunell, LaVar, Griffin, Washington, and Taylor, the Post from the first Nationals game with our ticket stubs, some UMD basketball posters and the picture of Ali KOing Liston. We still have a lot of extra space though, so I might get those SI covers or something.

Re: Malcolm's Redskins Room

Pretty awesome. I've been checking around for the posters and most are about $50.

LOL! Burgundy paint with yellow shutters?

The only problem is, I need HER income too.

Re: Malcolm's Redskins Room

If you've got about $400 to drop you should get one of these...



I'd get one if I wasn't poor.

Those are great. Thanks for the tip! We have a professional framing shop in town and I know the owner so I can get some good prices on the framing.

I've always had the Skins neon in my mind to buy, but man that price tag is kind of nuts.
