4266...Just Because He


Yahoo Sports reports that New York Red Bull footballer Theirry Henry likes fish tanks. A lot.

Let them tell you:

Despite living and working an Atlantic Ocean away from England's capital, Theirry Henry is planning to demolish his $9.5M London mansion in order to build... a slightly different mansion. A significant difference will be a 40-foot fish tank, which will be visible on every floor of the property. The Daily Mail reports: stretching 40ft from the bottom of his house to the very top, it will take 5,500 gallons of water to fill, house 300 fish and cost a staggering £250,000 [$400,000] to build. His proposals detail the extravagant four-storey aquarium. As well as the vast cost of construction, the 15ft long by 3ft wide tank will set Henry back £12,000 [$19,000] a year to run, including weekly inspections at about £50 [$80] an hour. The annual bill for fish food alone would be £2,500 [$4,000]. That seems like an awful lot of money for fancy fish. If Henry wanted to see something witlessly float around without achieving anything, he should just watch some of Andrei Arshavin's recent highlights.

We have, of course, seen the movie before and the ending, not so nice.
