Since this is the beginning of a new era, I thought that I should do something new. Watching the Oakland Raiders lead at the end of the first quarter was a pleasure. Although the Arizona Cardinals made the first touchdown, the Oakland Raiders are hanging in there with a lot of spunk and energy.
This large restaurant has more than 36 screens of different sizes to watch sports events. It was worth it to come to the loud place where folks were having fun.
I just gave a talk on "leadership" and I wanted to see this game between the Cardinals and the Raiders because I truly believe that leadership is going to make the difference.
The game is exciting. The teams tied at 7, at 10 and now it is 13-17 with Arizona leading.
That fire that we expect, and that determination has got to manifest itself. The goal is two consecutive wins to break the spell of the old patterns.
The goal needs to be achieved so that the spirit of the Raider Nation will rise up, and get energized for future games.
So far, I am very proud of the dynamics of the game.
The station that I am viewing almost has too many commercials, but you tolerate those interruptions with the hope of a powerful play for Oakland to again lead and keep the lead.
Will we win this one? I don't know but I hope so.
Looking at the great tackle that Rolando McClain just did that flipped the opponent is a sure sign of a lot of fire and fight in the Oakland Raiders.
Go Raiders! Win this one to show that the leadership of the team made some good decisions.
It's time for another commercial break on my station. See you later. 4:24 2nd Qtr
