From everything I've heard about him, he sounds like he'd be the best type of neighbor you could hope for.

And it looks he bought the place last year:

Yea he did but he had a ton of work done on it before coming here. He installed a MASSIVE boat dock for his yacht and redid 90% of the house. I think he'll only be here a few months out of the year, which is pretty typical around here for the uber rich folk.

Haven't met him yet, but I did yank an 8 iron into his backyard last week :-P

I live about 15 houses away from Randy White (the former Cowboy). The difference between my side of the street and his is...significant.

I see him in Bass Pro like...all the time.

We used to live in the same neighborhood as Don Henley. Again, his side was much different than mine haha.

I bought a Tivo remote on Craigslist because my dog chewed mine up. Drove to the guys house at lunch to pick it up and it was Leonard Davis. He came around the side of the house and I almost screamed. Dude is massive.

Also, his mom did a good job raising him if he still see's the value in $5.

Also, I got a good chuckle out of that one.
