I have been a Raiders fan for about 35 years now, but always at a distance, because I haven't lived anywhere that close. But this year, even though I'm in Texas, it looks like that is going to change...
My wife is from Houston, and grew up an Oilers fan, but they don't exist anymore, and she hasn't had a team to root for since. (The Titans are not the same.) She watched the Cowboys for a while, because that was who her ex followed, but never cared about them. She isn't into the Texans, because of the name (lol). I have been getting her more and more interested in the Raiders... heh.
So anyway, she suggested that this be the year that we make the trip to Oakland for a season opener, as long as she gets to have her own jersey, instead of wearing one of mine. (She wants one for her favorite player, Seabass.) What could I say but yes?
So, I will finally be able to cross this one off my bucket list. Any suggestions for seats, other than what I imagine will be a sold out Black Hole...?
