I don't follow it at all, I remember Alan Shearer joined Newcastle somewhere between 1996-2001 and they had a goalkeeper called Steve Harper who I guess must have retired by now. That is my sum knowledge about football players. Actually, that isn't entirely true: this missus is technically an ex-international player.
Footballer forgets he owns Porsche.[^] You know how it is you leave your car at the train station and forget it's there for 5 months, and have no recollection of ever owning it even though you personalised the number plate. Wish I had enough money to be this careless.
I can well believe he didn't remember it, they quite often get given cars to roll round in. I worked with a bloke who was a junior player with the Newcastle Falcons rugby squad. He was complaining bitterly that "Alan Shearer gets a new Jaguar XK every few months and his whole family was driving round in them but, as a Rugby player, all he got given was a Ford Focus". He didn't like my reply "Yeh it's a bummer that, I wish someone would give me a car simply for doing my f**king job", epic slapdown yet somehow fail also.
here in the US, in most cases, there is a city owned easement (buffer zone) that runs from the center of the street across the sidewalk into your yard about 10 feet. So even though the yard is yours, the city can come in and put in one of these utility boxes.
The exact same thing happened to me. Bought a new house. They built it from the ground up. A year later Verizon shows up & digs a hole on the right of my front yard and puts in a in-ground FIOS box. Pissed me off, but since it's on city owned easement, there's nothing I can do.
These things are typical in a lot of neighborhoods. They're unsighlty. I don't understand why than cant installe these flush access boxes in the sidewalk.
If it's not broken, fix it until it is
