Going into Saturday’s Christmas Eve game versus the Colts, I’d been basking in the gloriousness of a playoff berth — the first one in 14 years. It’s been tough being a Raider fan, to say the least, but I’ve never once called myself a fan of any other team.* *Save for the Green Bay Packers, […]Read more "2016 is Hopeless"
The Oakland Raiders’ 2016 season just feels like a dream. Like, all of a sudden, the black cloud that’s been hovering over the Raiders has been finally lifted, and it’s all rainbows and butterflies and Marquette King dancing gifs. Being a Raider fan has been tough, and you don’t need to be Stephen A. Smith […]Read more "The Anatomy of a 2016 Raider Fan"

Since then, it’s been a fruitful 16 months for a Bay Area sports fan, such as myself. *Oh, I also moved to London […]Read more "This time last year…I was in California."
There was this episode in the TV show Lost called “Room 23.” It was basically a room where the Dharma Initiative locked people in, blasted music at an inane level, and showed them this video.* *Watch the video. Watch all 2:58 of it with your sound on (preferably with over-the-ear headphones on for full-effect). You don’t […]Read more "BEASTMODE: OFF. DUMBMODE: ON."
This game is very high-stakes for me: – If the Seahawks win, that means the Patriots have lost and Niner fans are sad. – If the Patriots win, that means the Patriots have yet another championship (with an asterisk) and Niner fans are happy. I NEED THE SEAHAWKS TO WIN. In the meantime, while you’re […]Read more "Happy SuperBowl Sunday!"
