"Build it and they will come"...

Ok, let me start by saying I absolutely love my husband, ok, I got that out of the way!

About a month ago, my husband, whom I lovingly refer to as "TIGER", (nothing to do with CLEMSON), decided it would be a good idea to GUT the garage and turn it into a MAN CAVE. Come Again, a WHAT? Yes, that was the verbage he used. I think I may have said something like you are a FREAK or WT!, where the hell is all this crap going! Nonetheless, I set him free and lo and behold he created his dream....

Now, this all took place before the first Gamecock game so he could UNVEIL it to all the men in the neighborhood. Y'ALL he worked tirelessly for 2 days to get it JUST RIGHT..

I almost wet myself with glee for the man when he unveiled it, I have never seen him so excited, the man doesn't have a pulse, nothing bothers him, he is a constant. Now the MAN CAVE, that excited him.

The day of the game I looked around,and what did I see, men walking down the street towards our house with coolers full of beer. Women pushing babies in strollers also coming to our house. Children riding scooters and bikes coming to our house.. I looked at "TIGER" and said "did you invite all of these people to your MAN CAVE to watch the game?" Without missing a beat, he looked at me, and I swear to the Lord above he was serious and said..

" BUILD IT AND THEY WILL COME"

I'm negotiating the film rights to the story now. I envision George Clooney or Johnny Depp playing my part & instead of Shoeless Joe, the ghost of Chris Farley will come through the azaleas. I need a new tag line. How's " fill it with beer, food & football & the party will start"?

I'm beyond impressed. We had a garage at our old place and Alex still misses his "Men's Hut."

I'm adding a link to your blog from mine by the way!

Being a gamecock myself, I would LOVE to see some pictures of the man cave! I just found your blog and I am excited to read more!
