The Sports Club: How to Design A Sports Room

It's the Curse of the Bambino! We may not be that into the Red Sox, but we're diehard Celtics fans. But even as a fan, this Celtics-inspired recliner will never be OK in our den, no matter how much we reeeeally want KG to get a ring. One of our fellow Celtics fans wants to kit out his "man room" in full-on green and white, and he asked us for some tips. The tricky part? His "man room" isn't technically "his"--it's the den that he shares with his wife.

Our initial reaction is well, don't. Don't do it. We've seen the furniture, the bar stools, the billiards accessories. We get the catalogue every month, and we cringe. After putting out our feelers to both married couples and interior decorators, the general consensus is to limit your fan-dom to a sweatshirt and MAYBE a throw blanket if you want to keep your marital status in tact.

But maybe there's a way to decorate and still proclaim your team loyalty. Anyone have any tips or photos of chic sporty rooms?
