From Bratislava: A bronze statue peeking from a manhole. In the Slovak language it is called Čumil. It was created by Viktor Hulík in 1997.By PMATAS (Own work) [CC BY-SA 4.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0)%5D, via Wikimedia Commons

No more does a man want a den or study.

The word of the day is Man Cave.

Even Major League Baseball created a “Fan Cave.”

My wife remarked, “To me, so many of these man caves seem more like man HOLES.”

Well, try marketing vintage neon beer signs and other tough-guy memorabilia to someone for his hole. Regardless of how dark and dank his basement space might appear to others, CAVE is the required term.

Bears. Batman. Baseball fans on a reality show. They all agree. Party in the cave!

Words matter.
