Oakland Raiders News: I Am Thankful For The Raider Nation

With Thanksgiving upon us, I have stopped to reflect on all of the things that I am Thankful for.

I am thankful that my three children, wife and I are happy and healthy.

I am thankful that I have a job that allows me to jibber jabber about the Raiders and still keep the lights and water on.

And also at the top, I am thankful for Tyler Blezinski giving me the opportunity to start this community three seasons ago.

Though these have been three of the most painful seasons for any Raider fan to live through, we have developed quite a strong base of dedicated fans that use this site to discuss the games as they are being played and celebrate when our team is victorious, or has been more the case, to let it fly when they lose.

We've been through three drafts and I think we did better than the "pros" at drafting or slotting the players that should be here.

I am thankful that Marquez67 has joined me in this endeavor and I look forward to adding even more editors as the site grows.

Then there are my boyz and galz in the parking lot that have made EVERY game worth going to.

Chewbacca, Raider Rob, Fred, Eric, Cassandra, Raider Bob and the entire inside and out crews always have something grilling or a smile and hug for fellow fans of the Silver and Black.

You see, the Raider Nation is a family...Complete with the crotchety old grandpa...Bacon!!!!

Much Love Nation, and Thanks for making this place special.
