Can He Take it With Him?

The man formerly coach of the Denver Bronco's (the erzats god of Denver) has put his house up for sale. I'll let you add the commentary. I got this clip from a friend in real estate:

Former Broncos Coach Shanahan’s house is for sale. It has an indoor golf simulator, complete with 19th hole. Click the link below to tour, and check out the indoor practice facility. It is listed for $17 Million. If you put 20% down ($3.4mm) your monthly payment is about $90,000.00 and the taxes are $47,653.00 per year.

I cannot help but recall Tolstoy's "How Much Land Does a Man Need?".

"For your aesthetic pleasure, the main sink overlooks cascading water features."

There didn't seem to be many books in the library.

Not sure how much pleasure one can experience when they have all the "land" they need.

They funny thing is he is selling this one because he is just about done with his 35,000 sqft. home nearby.

Doug - if they hadn't relocated the seminary, the location would have been perfect for you! Of course the driving range would have been the death of your back, but there appears to be plenty of room to have a massage therapist on your staff. Sadly, the library seems to have very little room for books, but never fear, the Kindle is here! I am sure that you would be able to make the payment on this posh estate with the royalties off the download sales of "Truth Decay." (http://www.amazon.com/Truth-Decay-Christianity-Challenges-Postmodernism/dp/B001XUR77A/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=digital-text&qid=1240367917&sr=1-1) and "Reclaiming the Center." Surprisingly, "The Soul in Cyberspace" is not yet available!

Have just finished my James paper; I think the writer of that epistle would have some strong words for this kind of wanton self-indulgence.

Expanding on Dave's comment- the second biggest travesty of this property (beyond it's opulence and over-indulgence) is the lack of books in the library.
