Perhaps some of you bleacher denizens have seen this guy’s work before. I had not. Great stuff. One example:
Drew Magary’s Why Your Team Sucks series gets to the Raiders. A little too much of the “fans at the games are dangerous criminals” I think…I suspect you’re about as likely to get beaten and shanked in a lot of other places as you are at the Coliseum (I’m looking at you, Candlestick Park). But as a Raider fan it’s hard not to identify with the rampant despair. For example:
I still think about the Tuck Rule game. Not because I’m angry, but because I’m nostalgic for a time when our season went down in flames on one dramatic, insane call rather than grinding, methodical incompetence.
RIP, Elmore Leonard. You were the best.
