Threatening to Climb Out of the Cellar

On Sunday, the Raiders finally pulled out a win.

The way the team played on Sunday showed their loyal fans that they were serious about trying to turn the beginning of the season around. If you watched last week then you know that the Raiders were schooled by a far worse team and lost big. This week though, the team showed up to win and win they did.

We got up at 5:30 a.m. to head over to Oakland. When the parking lot opened we were ready to tailgate. We grilled tri-tip, chicken, hot dogs and had tons of snacks. This game we had special passes and were able to hang out on the field. We also were able to sit on the field for the game. Beezy even got to smack hands with a player and talk to some of the Ravens players. We also saw our favorite guy from Hard Knocks Charles James. He had on boring black socks so clearly his sock game wasn't on point Sunday.

We had a great time at the game and were very excited that the team pulled out a win. However, it was in the high 90s with no breeze so we were sweating hard core. I think I drank 10 bottles of water in the 5 hour span of being there. This was also my first at home win that I've been in attendance. Every game we've went to they lost last season. It was exciting to finally see their dedicated fans happy while leaving the stadium. So maybe it's going to happen. Maybe the Raiders are finally going to climb out of the cellar and win this season. In Al's immortal words... Just win baby!
