    Unable to find a buyer for his Weston, Fla., home, Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino has a new game plan: He’s throwing in $1.5 million worth of designer furniture—and a signed football, too. The former Miami Dolphin first listed the house—about 25 miles west of Fort Lauderdale—three years ago and twice cut the price. Now, Mr. Marino, 47 years old, and his wife, Claire, are asking $13.5 million for the 15,000-square-foot Tuscan home on four acres. They built it in 1998 and among other things put in a new master suite and marble showers. The home has 10 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms and two powder rooms. The property includes two guest houses, a pool, a putting green, a 5,000-bottle wine cellar and a pond stocked with fresh bass.


    Anyone have $13.5 Million I can borrow, if so I will let you hold the football for a minute or two.

    If you live down here you're sick of this story.

    I love Marino like any other Dolphin fan but this ploy of his house offering free advertising in the media is a tired act. It's all over the place.
    Offering a autographed football with the sale of a 13 million dollar house is silly but the media have run with it like it's an earth shattering offer. :rolleyes:

    Who said it was about "need". This is America, and we can have as many bedrooms as we dang well please. What, are you a Socialist or something? :lol:Each according to his need...:tongue2::tongue2:

    Does this mean they are restocking the pond everyday?

    You know, I was debating whether or not I should spend 13 million on this home, and then Dan threw in the signed football and that was the deal breaker. 13 million it is!

    bad times for most, a nightmare for many
    I'm sure the Chateau Marino is but one of many tangible assets Dan possesses.
    It won't make or break him. I wish him well in every endeavor.

    one of the reasons I'm on the forum so much lately, is to avoid thinking about the economy & political mess we find ourselves in under the new administration. (one man, one vote: another chance to right the Republic with new elections right around the corner.)
    We've weathered worse than this current fiasco & will survive, hopefully, without too much damage being done before we can right the Ship of State. I'm remembering Carter, better not to go there. I'm already pathetically off the spirit of the thread. My heart goes out for everyone during these chaotic & painful times, especially to Working America & our Military.

    Marino will get a fair price for his residence, the Market Price.

    he had better be awful small before I put him back. Lake Crisco, is where I restock.
