Nats cribs vs. Redskins cribs
The past week has provided us a nice opportunity to compare a Nats crib with a Redskins crib. The three-bedroom bachelor pad shared by Nats relievers Craig Stammen, Tyler Clippard and Drew Storen was featured on MASNSports earlier in the week. (Watch it here.) And the 13,000-square Loudoun County mansion owned by Redskins safety LaRon Landry was featured in the latest issue of Home & Design, as discovered by the Skins Blog.
Now, obviously this isn't a totally baller-to-baller comparison. Landry presumably lives here full-time, while the Nats guys scatter in the offseason. Landry was a former first-round pick, and Clippard and Stammen weren't. Landry is out in the country, while the Nats relievers are closer to the city. Still, let's compare and contrast.
Much of Landry's home is accented in burgundy and gold, but it's never more striking than with this light fixture about his billiards table. The Nats fellas don't have a billiard table, instead going with a shuffleboard table with a small bowling set, but they do have some home-team touches, like the Nats banner Clippard uses to block out the sun in his room.
"I need darkness to sleep, he explained.
Both residences have self-described man caves. Landry refers to his entire lower level as "Landry's Lounge."
The state-of-the-art home theater, designed by Mike Sines of Homerun Communications, is a big draw for Landry's teammates. "The theater gives me a chance to kick back and catch my brother play for the Ravens, as well as scout the opposition," says Landry. "I also like to have the 'fellas in and we all just hang and watch a movie on the big screen."
Back at Chez Nats, "This is the man cave right here," Clippard narrates. "We've got three recliners, we've got the Wii, Xbox, the whole nine yards. So we get it done in here for sure."
Landry has a "well-equipped gym decked out in the purple and gold colors of Louisiana State University--Landry's alma mater, where he became a football star. "
Storen affixed the lineup card from his first career MLB save on his bedroom wall.
"Good stuff," Clippard said.
"Good little reminder right there," Storen said. "Nothing too exciting.
Landry's kitchen "boasts two large islands, a dining area and a casual seating space, with "pendants over the island replaced overly formal chandeliers."
"This is what champions are made out of, boys and girls," Clippard said, opening the freezer in his kitchen.
Landry's sunroom "boasts a new sofa upholstered in Kravet fabric and oversized armchairs by John-Richard."
The Nats' sunroom boasts a red vacuum cleaner.
