Usually when I have to take my car in to service at the dealership, I have to mentally prepare myself to take out a seventh mortgage, steal all the neighborhood kids' lunch monies, and possibly auction off an organ or two. But not today! Today, I get to take the car in because of a recall. Free service! And a free loaner BMW! And breakfast! It is a nice dealership, that's for sure.
In other news...
Busy day in football: Real Madrid sign Kroos (boo!); Arsenal sign Debuchy (meh); Newcastle sign Janmaat (...crickets); Roma sign Iturbe (nice); Juve sign Allegri as their new manager (that was quick, especially after a "surprise" resignation/mutual consent thing!). Meanwhile, Michael Carrick is ruled out for 3 months and Ángel Correa, with whom we were briefly linked, will miss six months with A TUMOR IN HIS HEART! Holy [fun]!
