Gilbert Arenas could have purchased $110 million pools (actually that would be only purchased, somehow) which absolutely floors me. Why "only", you ask? Because his pool, seen above and after the jump, costs one ... meeellion dollars. Many thanks to Dan Steinberg of D.C. Sports Bog for promulgating these photos and for Gil for being cool enough to let them ride.
Just in case the trio of Fred Smoot, Chris Knoche and Steve Czaban weren't reliable enough sources on the fabulousness of Gilbert Arenas's million-dollar pool, which Czaban claimed will be one of the largest residential pools in America, I bring you alleged pics of said pool, courtesy of a regular Bog reader and diehard Wizards fan who recently visited the work site with one of the crews.Yeah. That's decent. I have a 4.5 foot deep pool that's about as big as Gil's grotto and I feel like I'm pretty lucky. Of course, I have to climb out the window of my mom's basement and sneak around the house to use it, but whatevs.
The reader provides some facts, which he gleaned from one of the contractors:
* The stone for the "mountain" cost nearly half a million dollars.
* There are three different fish tanks, one going in the "grotto," one in the front hall, and one in the basement. Their normal retail price would have been about another half-million.
* The tank in the basement will have a recess with a couch in it so Gil can "relax and look up at the fish."
* The work is scheduled to be finished in August.
OMGOMGOMG. We have the same TV. LOLZ.
That's what one million dollars of rock looks like, apparently.
Sure. Why not?
