I'd like to express my sincere thanks for the hospitality you have shown me and other Colts fans this last week. Every time we travel to opposing team's blogs before a game we never know quite what to expect. Every site has it's own unique character and Silver and Black Pride is certainly no exception to that. You guys seem to have a really tight-knit community going on here and it really shines through when you read through the comments sections in your varied high-quality posts. You take a lot of pride in your freedom to be the Raiders fans that you want to be and not what others expect you to be. And for that, I commend you.
I'm sure you guys are pretty let down after being eliminated from the playoffs, so I won't poke the bear by talking about the game a lot, but let's just say that when that opening kickoff was returned for a touchdown I may have crapped my pants a little bit. It was a well-fought game, as I expected it to be, and there is absolutely no shame in losing to a team that is fighting for it's playoff life.
You've got a good team building over there in Oakland and it's sure to get better after you do your usual bang-up job in the draft this spring. So, good luck to you in 2011, and I'll see you again in four years!
Once Again, Thanks For the Hospitality,
