Oakland fans are all very excited for the 2010 football season to be here! The draft merely wet our whistles and teased us with anticipation for the fall to arrive sooner than later. Preseason is here, and the excitement continues to soar as we are able to sneak a peak at the possibility of new stars shining in the NFL.
However, not much compares to the real season, the one that counts, where stats, performances, wins and losses are all recorded on a permanent record.
It's nothing short of spectacular to watch every game of the season from the comfort of your own home, but there is no feeling in the world of football greater than attending a live game. You experience everything from the roar of the crowd to seeing your favorite players live in action. It's amazing!
However, if you REALLY want to embrace the total experience of being at a game, my personal advice is to attend a tailgate, and not just any tailgate, but an Oakland Raiders fan tailgate. Think of it as a personal pep rally, only more intense, and a lot more fun.
You can experience many things like great food and drinks, awesome music, bonding with fellow fans, and getting pumped up and ready to cheer for your team favorites. You may even be lucky enough to witness one of your past heroes joining in the fun and signing autographs for his fans!
