The colts may be the worst team in the NFL. I think the Jets are a close second.

They need Luck back. Badly. He's masked a lot of problems that team has had the last several years.

Spoiler alert: When Adrian Peterson is in the game for the Saints, they're running the ball. That fit never made sense.

Worst day of NFL football I can remember. Just awful. 

I agree.  It was REALLY bad.

And another awful game tonight. If I was in any way on the fence about watching football (I'm not) this week might be a deal breaker for me. Even the competitive games weren't very entertaining.

College football to me has always been more exciting and these past two weeks of games are the reason why. UCLA vs Texas A&M and Oklahoma vs Ohio State were the best so far.

Clearly the NFL needs to play either on Thursday nights or Monday nights.   Everything else they are soooooo bad at.

So a girl I've been hooking up with sends me a text during the game: "let's hear some things" to which I reply "let's see some things." She promptly responds with "f*** off." What can I say? It's a gift xD

I'm in a similar boat. My 2006 BMW X5, which has been an amazing vehicle, the favorite one I've ever owned, needs close to $8,000 worth of repairs. About six months ago everything on it just went to hell. There are places online where you can search for vehicle salvage and they'll list your car for pickup. I got an offer of $5000 for mine, which is about 10x what a dealership would give me for a trade in.

@champ11 where do you live?  I know you said you don't live in COL anymore.  Are there more than 1 dealership for the car you'd like to get?

I've bought a car 4x in my life, and learned from my disasters as a teen/young college student:

1.  If you are buying new - it helps a lot if there's more than 1 dealership for the car you want.

2.  Don't give out info that says you are in a hurry to get the car.   The moment you do that, you are sunk.     Be willing to walk off the lot.

3.  Don't get upset, angry, etc.   Again, the more you look emotionally invested in buying the car, the more the salesman will think they can outwait you.

4.  If it's new, find a way to get info on the wholesale cost of the car.    Sadly, as I don't live in the US, I don't know the resources, here, we have associations that actually get the book price and a quote that a dealership has agreed to give association members - so we use that as the basis (I say "I know it's a pain to drive to the big city and get that deal, so I'm happy to go $X above that price to save me the trouble").   NO IDEA what resources exist where you live.

5.  If it's used, then make sure you can get some type of info on the actual history of the car (carfax?).  

6.  Like #4, knowing the mileage of the car, and the type, there are resources to know the estimated value of the car.   Again, for US, can't help you, but there's got to be some out there.


Hope that helps you out....my experience buying the last 2 cars was WAY better than my first 2 lol.
