Born in 1975. Just old enough to experience the last Raiders chip in 1983 and Dodgers World Series in 1988. Plunkett with his punter's facemask, Alzado's roid rage, and Orel's geeky dominance. I miss the Marcus Allen/Bo Jackson backfield and Tommy Lasorda on the bench. At least we still have Vin Scully. It's been tough times for Raiders Nation except for a Chucky-infused blip. Why can't the Dodgers beat the Cardinals? Many broken remotes and televisions due to The Tuck Rule, Callahan not changing the plays in the Superbowl against Gruden, the drafting of Jamarcus Russell over Megatron, Fabian over Aaron Rogers...I digress. Thank goodness for fantasy sports. Go Raiders & Dodgers!!!
