A die-hard Raiders fan… literally


This is unbelievable…

“You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.” – Obi-Wan Kenobi

Kenobi was talking about Mos Eisley spaceport, but if he were an NFL fan he probably would’ve been referring to the Oakland (now actually the “Network Associates”… sellouts) Coliseum instead.

You can try and disagree, but this Reuters tidbit backs up my opinion pretty well…

PHOENIX (Reuters) – Arizona executed a 50-year-old man by lethal injection on Tuesday for the murder of a camper in 1987, state prison officials said.

Robert Charles Comer, convicted of the murder of Larry Pritchard, was put to death at 10 a.m. at the Arizona State Prison complex in Florence, southeast of Phoenix.

When asked if he had any last words, witnesses reported that Comer smiled and said, “Yes, Go Raiders!” in what appeared to be a reference to the Oakland, California, professional football team.

Now I’m sure that there are some decent Oakland Raiders fans out there, but there are a lot of scary ones. This is why I won’t venture into the unfriendly confines of the Coliseum, and I went to the Chiefs game at Qualcomm Stadium last year. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to end up another tear drop on some dude’s face because I’m sporting my L.J. jersey. I’m die-hard, nobody will dispute that, but I won’t literally die for my Kansas City Chiefs. I still can’t believe this… this revelation totally supports what I’ve been saying about Raiders fans for years — a high percentage of them are scum.

Watch out for another big Star Wars-related post tomorrow. That’s all I can say about it right now, besides that you’ll laugh your ass off. Remember to vote for The COAT!
