Out of all the things to forget...

Soccer star Jermaine Pennant forgets he owns Porsche, leaves it at train station

ENGLISH Premier League star Jermaine Pennant - once Britain's most expensive teenage soccer player - forgot he owned a Porsche, leaving the luxury car at a train station for six months.

On the same day "Britain's brainiest footballer", Burnley defender Clarke Carlisle, announced he had been selected as a panelist on the BBC's Question Time, Pennant helped re-install the image of the intellectually-challenged sportsman with the extraordinary memory fail.

Pennant, who has a collection of sports cars, abandoned the Porsche in Spain when he left Spanish club Real Zaragoza for a loan spell at Stoke City last August. When authorities contacted him about the situation last week, he told them he had forgotten he owned the vehicle.

Authorities at the rail station in Zaragoza - also called Saragossa - found that the keys for the car, which has a customised number plate reading "P33NNT", were left on the passenger seat.

The 28-year-old, who joined Arsenal for £2 million ($3.19m) as a 15-year-old schoolboy, earned £80,000 ($128,000) a week during his year with Real Zaragoza.

His loan spell at Stoke became permanent last month on a £2.8 million ($4.5m) transfer.

It was unclear whether he would be reclaiming the vehicle. - maybe we should make a phone call and ask to take it off his hands?

Geez, what a retard.

Strong waste of a BMW, if they would've given it to me there wouldn't even be as much as a rockchip on it.
