This game is gonna be real fun for me.
Greetings to all the denizens of BTSC. I am Raybin and you'll find me discussing all things related to Raider Nation over at Silver and Black Pride. For the first half of the season, I went to the blogs of the Raiders opponents and made a FanPost inviting fans of the other team to post comments/questions about the Raiders that I would attempt to answer. Then things got just too depressing and I haven't. But I wasn't going to miss this for the world.
You see, despite being raised a Raider fan from the cradle, I was born and grew up in Indiana County and now live here in Pittsburgh itself. There's an outside chance I'll be going to the game, but regardless of if that happens or not...I'm stoked like I haven't been in a long time for a football game.
So let's do this. Got questions about the Raiders? I'm your man.
By the way, I'm gonna come right out and say you can pin the loss to the Ravens on me. For maybe the 3rd or 4th time in my life I was rooting for the Steelers because of Dennis Dixon....I don't think the universe was able to handle it.
Finally, a request. Being a Raider fan involves enduring levels of pain, alcoholism and despair on levels you can't imagine unless you followed the Penguins from 2002-2006. So throw me a bone and please don't mention the You-Know-What Reception. I might have to take hostages otherwise and no one wants that.
