One of our biggest MTV show guilty pleasures (besides Teen Mom, it's okay you can admit it) had to be the popular show Cribs. The show took you inside the lavish humble abodes of our favorite celebrities and athletes.
Ohio State Football players Craig Fada and Joe Burger take you on a tour of their 1,532 square foott, 3 bedroom/2 bathroom apartment in Columbus, Ohio.
"Welcome to 201," they say as the camera crew flies through the front door.
Burger, clenching a red mug in his right hand says the famous words: "Alright, welcome to our crib."
The apartment is decked out with Ohio State decor complete with a poster of Coach Urban Meyer as well as a music station.
"It gets pretty wild around here," says Fada.
Atop the granite counter island in the kitchen sits a Mens Fitness magazine while the instrumental version of "Make Me Better" by Fabolous plays in the background.
Of course no NCAA Football pad is complete without it's own video game paradise. Burger and Fada show off their man cave with an XBox 360 console.
"This is where we dominate fools online," boasts Burger.
Fada is first on the list to give a tour of his room. He shows off his jewelry and his "secret tank top drawer." He calls himself a "tank fiend."
Then of course the infamous line as he jumps on his bed:
"This is where all the magic happens."
As the camera goes quickly to Burger's room, he begins to talk about his backpacks, then his shoes. He loves his Sperry's.
The middle room is decorated with funky light bulb words on the wall spelling out "The Grind." I think the "E" was originally supposed to be an "M," but it is still aesthetically pleasing. The words are sandwiched between two over sized silver bullets.
"It's all the silver bullets," he says. "We rep the defense around here. No offensive players are allowed. It's all about the bullets."
The linebackers then cue the shades and show you what it's like when the sun goes down. "The Grind" sign lights up and the apartment turns into a make-shift nightclub complete with colorful lights.
They finalize the tour in the garage which would make a rich man weak in the knees, calling the cars their "whips."
I'm a bit disappointed guys, no look into the refrigerator?
