I have been a Raiders fan for 20 years but even before then watched their games just because of the old attitudes they had. I remember watching Alzado get into it with 2 Broncos lineman at the same time, and how exciting their games were. Living in the area of different teams it really makes you stronger and more devoted as a fan when you have to search for any newsworthy item about the team I follow.
I also am a fan of the Chicago White Sox and Phillies in baseball, Bulls and Mavericks in the NBA, in hockey I like the New Jersey Devils and Blackhawks. I've recently discovered rugby, dont get the rules but it appears to be a sport that needs more promotion.
A little about me; married (wont put how long as I would have to update every year), a son-used to have 2 but the younger son died at age 5 from medical complications that occured just after birth. We have 3 dogs-1 we had to live with the in-laws when we moved. Have worked in several different fields during my life, restaurant, warehouse, treatment facility for teens with behavioral issues.
I live 20 miles south of Dallas, and proudly display my Raider stickers on my windshield! Anybody can be a Cowboys fan, a Colts fan, or any of the "favorite teams, but it takes a special person to cheer for the Oakland Raiders! Not everyone is cut out to be a citizen of the Raider Nation.
