Remembering CC Sabathia’s Project

As I was going over content for the blog, the new website has options for YouTube posts. This here is the MTV video feature of the CC Sabathia home, after completing an extensive install, including full-blown home theater, lighting, pool/spa, shades, security, and overall bling.
