NFL Legends Show Humble Respect for Life on the Grid Iron

In terms of luxury homes owned by professional Athletes, current Denver Broncos Quarterback, Peyton Manning has an absolutely beautiful mansion in Cherry Hills, Colorado.   His home is valued at $4.5 million dollars and features a wine cellar, billiards room, and home theater room.  What is most confusing to us is that his home theater looks like an average den or family room.  The room itself is classy and full of grace, yet may be found in any upper middle-class American home.

As a career football player one would think that retired Denver Broncos quarterback John Elway would want a simply amazing space to relive the golden memories of six AFC Championships and two Super Bowl victories, but it seems that his high-tech entertainment room is simply ordinary.  As a native Colorado professional Home Theater retailer, we would love to give his entertainment room a makeover.

Terry Bradshaw, former quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers listed his $9.9 million dollar Oklahoma 7500 square foot ranch home which sits on 650 Acres of beautiful Oklahoma land.  This rustic home features 6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, and 2 partial bathrooms with an array of relaxation options like a pool, tennis courts, a barn, an exquisite outdoor grilling arena and a simple entertainment room.  We got a good look at the listing for his home couple of years ago, and it doesn't look like this house has a home theater either!  The former athlete's photographed entertainment room consisted of a billiards and gaming table, coupled with a fully equipped old-fashioned juke box. 

Joe Montana, a legend in the history of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs listed his 500 acre Tuscan-Style Napa Valley estate for a whopping $49 million dollars which remained on the market at that price from 2010 until 2012.   We scoured the web but could not find a single photograph of an entertainment room or home theater on this property. 

We are a bit confused.   We assumed that someone who loves the game as much as they do would need the prestige, comfort, and bragging rights of a luxurious home theater fully adorned with relics and mementos of their successful careers.   So why do so many star NFL Quarterbacks have meager home theaters? 

Our best guess is that life on the field has given them a unique perspective.   Rather than sitting back and watching the game, they prefer to live it.
