 Last week during a kickoff of the Oakland Raider's upset of the Philadelphia Eagle's a pigeon flew in perfect formation along with the Raider special teams . The camera's caught this bird as he lined up and took off and flew as if he was playing along side the other Raider's. It made me think " Hey maybe that's Marquis Cooper and he's come back to help the Raider's ".

 Who knows if we can ever get back to this special place after our time is done , but it still made me think about Marquis and how he would have been running in perfect formation just like the bird flew on Sunday. I will be looking for him again this Sunday. Go Raiders.........
