I understand you’re a big Raiders fan. Explain yourself:
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 80’s, it was impossible not to be a Raiders fan. They were the hottest team during that era, and the Raiders had this FU attitude that was a major draw for me. They’ve laid a major egg in the last 13 years, but it’s my team and I can never jump ship. They’ll become relevant soon. Trust.
