Contrary to what his Wikipedia page says, Al Davis was not born in 1776 though his July 4th B-Day seems as if it were scripted. One of the most independent figures in all of sports could only have been born on the day we celebrate independence.
Happy Birthday, Mr. Davis!
Thanks for being one of the last true owners in football. Say what you will of Davis but unlike so many modern owners he puts his money back into his franchise instead of his summer home. Hopefully he’ll see even better returns on his investment this season.
I’m sure the only thing Davis wants for his birthday is to get back to the business of football. We all do.
