Three Years Ago Today

Three years ago to the day I posted my first blog in this space. Well, to be honest, I am not sure when it all started, but by the records I have it was the first post.

It has grown and mutated. Some of you have been here since the early stages. Allow me to say thank you for sticking around.

I have my good days and I have my bad days and I put as much effort as a man can put into it and still have a healthy life.

If I was a bachelor, taking up ridiculous amounts of time blogging about a team that hasn’t been good for a while would be borderline acceptable, but for a married man it is borderline insane at times.

My wife allows the insanity. She is truly amazing. She keeps everything going, even when I am busy mashing keys or tweeting about the latest Raiders news, she is there supporting me. She is the hidden formula that keeps this thing afloat and she’s one heck of a blogger herself.

No, she isn’t much of a football fan, but she knows it is a part of who I am. So thanks for letting me share a part of myself. The Raiders will ascend once again to the elite in the NFL. When that happens, just remember who was blogging when times were tough.

  • Wise strategy. RT @Ryan_Riddle: Rex Ryan should blitz the heck out of Derek Carr. Has not proven he can handle it at any level.
