Ok, guys. Here's the deal. I'm not going all-out with a mancave or anything like that, by I wanted to take about ten-or-so pictures, blow them up to poster-size, frame them, and get them strewn around my basement.

Or maybe make a collage of these great moments.

So yeah...first thing I need to do is figure out these situations that I'm going to take pictures of. That's where you guys come in.

I root for the following:

Orioles (1990-now):

1. Something from the 2012 season. Can't think of what. Maybe Davis carrying McLouth. Maybe the celebratory jump at game-end.
2. Cal
3. A big shot of OPACY in some way
4. Other

Ravens (inception-now):

1. The Jacoby Jones TD
2. Scott blowing up Ben
3. 2001 title, natch (probably the "Ray Lewis with the newspaper" picture)
4. Other

Tar Heels (1999-now)

1. Green dunking on Paulus
2. 2005 title
3. 2009 title
4. Other (something else from the school days, probably).

So...yeah. Help!

The two Others for the Ravens should be pictures of the 2000 and 2013 Super Bowl teams.

Yeah, I wrote this really quickly, so I completely forgot about the 2001 title at the time. We'll see about the 2013 title (if it happens!), but I'm going with Jacoby for now, as I was AT that game. :-D

A comfortable couch (recliner is mandatory) and a nice TV. 

 

Also sports memorabilia on the walls is a nice touch.

I have a ton of that.

 

Are you saying recliner with the sectional or separate?

Either one.  I know at HH Gregg they have larger sectionals and then the end unit is its own recliner.  They had a really plush one that you just sink into.  I almost fell asleep on the show room floor it was so comfortable lol.

Yea...I bought a sectional with 2 recliners and a chaise lounge with it...Also has a cup holder and compartment piece as well.

 

Ridiculously comfortable.

Where did you get it and how much?  I'm in the market for some new basement furniture.

That's what I wanted for mine too, but since I now have a man-corner of the basement, and not man-cave, I didn't have the room for it, and went with a straight couch with chaise, going to revisit the sectional with compartment section after we buy a bigger house.

Value City actually... I shopped at 10 different stores and couldn't find anything nearly as comfortable. It was 2400 on sale(usually 2800)...leather...I looked at lazy boys which are really good quality but they were 6000+ and not as comfortable.

Since you've been talking about having poker nights, I assume you have a poker table?

No one's yet mentioned having a "dancer" pole for wives or girlfriends as a man-cave must?

Lemme get two claps and a Ric Flair

They want to keep their man-caves.

I'd like to build a bar in my man cave, when I get one. Bar, humidor, big comfy L-Shape couch w/ matching recliner for me. Huge TV, surround sound. I have a ton of bar mirrors I got from my grandfather. I plan on decorating with that, my sports stuff, and I'd like to get framed movie posters of maybe my five favorite movies, since my man cave would also double as the movie theater.

A few movie posters isn't a bad idea....I have to see if I have the room.

I plan on getting a bar put in eventually...there is some plumbing rough in coming out of the wall already.

Pool table? Or if there's space, how about shuffleboard?
