Raider Take Express for 7/29

Here is the latest edition of the Raider Take Express, our weekly roundup of activities and adventures around the turf of Raider Take. Please keep sending your ideas, tips and feedback to Don't be shy! We want to hear from you.

1. Caleb wrote and sent the accompanying photo: “This is a picture from a Chargers fan, a shot of the Chargers’ tunnel into the locker room.” He sent it as a reminder of Art Shell’s message that the Raiders are deeply hated across the AFC West, and that it’s high time the Raiders returned the favor. Revenge will be sweet on the evening of September 11 in Oakland, eh? Thanks for the bulletin board material, Caleb!

2. William B. wrote to inform Raider Take of this article about a recent dinner celebrating Art Shell in the company of other Raider legends, including Jim Otto, Cliff Branch, Ben Davidson, Pete Banazak and others. If you haven’t seen it, check it out. I'll bet they told some good stories.

3. Horsecollarjack reported that he purchased season tickets for the first time this week, proving that it’s not too late. If you’re on the fence about season tickets, I urge you to look into it—you’ll be impressed by the pricing options and the customer service. Call my guy at the Oakland Raiders ticket office, Jhmichea (pronounced Juh-MIKE-uh) Snyder, at 1-800-RAIDERS ext. 3225. He’ll set you up. Tell him Raider Take sent you.

4. Jerry "WTFDYTYA" Porter pulled his groin this morning. Apparently, he was trying to put on his belt and accidently got jabbed by a dollar sign. This is the latest in a rash of injuries to Porter. He tore a rotater cuff counting his $13 million signing bonus last year, and he pulled a hamstring running out of Art Shell's office a few months ago.
