The End Of An Era- Raiders Leave Oakland

At this writing there is only one Raider home game left in Oakland. I went to the 2nd to the last game at the Oakland Coliseum Dec. 8th to see the Raiders host the Tennessee Titans. My first memories of Football were watching the Raiders with my Grandpa. He taught me all about the game while we shared salami & cheese with Chicken in a Biskit crackers. Usually I watch the Raiders lose in the comfort of my home, but this time, Rick Metz and I drove through ice and snow to see them lose in person. The area around The Oakland Coliseum is filled with so much love and energy. Raider fans are all the same color- Silver & Black. Raider Alley in the tailgate party parking lot is where Men & Women. boys & girls bond together over their love of one of the most legendary teams in the N.F.L. One such person is none other than “Big Ant”. Big Ant and his family have been in the top spot in Raider Alley since day one. Here’s Big Ant now…

Here’s a few pics:
