If you’re a pasty, doughy dork, you could use the fortune ransacked from the couch cushions to monopolize Madden ’08. Or, if you’re true blue Cowboys fan, you can live with Troy Aikman -- or, at least, you can live where he used to live.
The Hall of Fame quarterback and all-around great guy has moved to Highland Park, and his old digs in Plano are up for sale. For a cool $4 mil you can enjoy his 10,000-square feet, six-bedroom, six-fireplace, six-car garage mansion that backs up to Glen Eagles Country Club and almost assuredly smells of rich mahogany. When you buy it, though, please answer for us the burning question: Are the bricks on his house really ACME? --Richie Whitt

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
