Just 10 More Days!

With the Oakland Raiders first preseason game just 10 days away, many fans are full of excitment, as am I. As a season ticket holder, to me the off season is just re-upping time. To the die-hard fans, there is no offseason. To casual fans they just wonder, when does the season start again.

In the midst of the finding that the season will have its first show, at the HOF game. Although the Raiders first game is not for 10 more days. August Eighth to be exact. The most suitable part about this game, is that we will play against the San Francisco forty-niners. In any pre-season game, the time is worthless, the plays are worthless, and the final score is worthless, but not this game.

To the Die-hard Raider fans, we do not want to lose our only match-up against our foes across the water. Our Neighbors from the west. The simple fact is that this is a rivalry.

This fan favorite game is also a big thing for a lot of Raiders fans, for the fact we get to see Nnamdi and DeAngelo paired for the first time, JaMarcus Russell suit up as ready as can be, and the new defensive line, with Kelly, Warren, and Joseph. There is no doubt in my mind that the building will be electrified.

The hits our defense makes will be bruising, and the ready and waiting Alex Smith will have a tough time throwing the ball, so Mike Nolan has already told him to keep handing the ball to Gore.
