Moving houses …Man Cave tear down and some reflective thoughts

After years of building up my man cave, adding pieces over time and filling almost all available wall space it’s time to tear it all down and pack it up for our upcoming move. I’ll have a slightly smaller space in the new house but I look forward to starting fresh with it…and it’s time for downsizing anyhow, so going forward more things need to move out the door than in.

Since I won’t have a man cave to look at for a while, let’s see your man cave glamour shots!

    No man cave here. Just a great Olympia picture over my bar. Love all the Tiger's memorabilia.

    We have very different definitions of filling available wall space. ;) Love your room and the Tigers stuff. What is on the mannequin? An usher uniform? So cool.

    Great man cave with the Tiger gear.

    Has that mannequin ever flinched on its own?

    Kiss me once, shame on you.
    Kiss me twice.....let's party.

    The mannequin hasn’t flinched yet, but I’m still waiting on him (Kenny the mannequin Tigers usher) to come alive just like the mannequin’s on that old episode of the twilight zone…but in this episode he takes me to my private box seats at Tiger stadium behind the Tigers dugout and wipes our seats off and I hand him a buck before Kaline shoots out to right field to shag some fly balls. It has definitely scared more than a few visitors though as it is the first thing you suddenly see when you come down the stairs….it has garnered more than a few shrieks from people over the years I have to say…

    Great set up. I like the mini-baseball game. IIRC I played one many years ago. Brought back a few memories.
