Looking to move? Want a to buy a quick fixer-upper and flip it for a profit? Former Super Bowl champion Warren Sapp has a deal for you.

A Florida bankruptcy court has ordered the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers star to auction off his home, which comes equipped with a water slide, two-story wine cellar, movie theater, its own lake (with a dock), five full bathrooms and three half-baths. But only four bedrooms.

Sapp, who is $6.7 million in debt, had to auction off the property or face jail time.

"Do you think I wanted to declare bankruptcy?" Sapp told the Associated Press. "Do you think, if there was any other way possible, I would have done it? It was either this or go to jail."

The original cost of the property was $7 million, way back in 2005.


On the list of Sapp's assets: over 200 pairs of Air Jordans. Perfect for your pet centipede.

The auction will take place at 8 a.m. PDT on Nov. 1 at the Orlando Airport Marriott in Orlando, Fla. So head on out. Even if you don't get the house, you can still visit Disney World. And who knows, maybe Sapp will be there, picking up a few extra dollars by being the ride operator for Space Mountain.
