I'm a life long Raiders fan who lives in the South Bay. I had a rough childhood, growing up with parents and relatives who were all Denver Bronco fans. I also like following the A's, Sharks and Warriors.
You can find me prior to Raiders games grilling steaks outside the Coliseum, kicking back, and sipping a few good beers, which do not include any form of light beer! During the games I will be cheering on the Silver and Black in Section 143 with family and friends.
I thoroughly enjoy the Raiders game experience, but also find the Raiders' off season player and coaching moves to be fascinating. Without question the Raider Nation includes some of the most knowledgeable and passionate fans in the country. I enjoy reading their thoughts on Raiders developments, which are often very insightful, but sometimes tend more toward wishful thinking.
My writing style involves researching topics, using established data to support the article, and hopefully providing insights or scenarios that are backed by sound logic. It's fun to sit back after the article is published and see the Raider Nation's reaction in the resulting blogs.
Hopefully you will enjoy my articles, and remember,: Raaaaiiiiiddddeeerrrssss!
