If you’re keeping score at home the Oakland Raiders are two-for-two in home sellouts thus far this season. Which means not only can you keep score from home but you can watch the game at home too if you’re in the local area.
We’re almost a full month into the season and have yet to see any “Blackout in The Black Hole” headlines. The Raiders announced today that Sunday’s clash with the Patriots will be played in an O.co Coliseum that will be at full capacity.
Hue Jackson just keeps making Al Davis look better each week.
Safe to say the Raiders wouldn’t be experiencing the same type of resurgence had Davis stayed the course with Tom Cable.
But that’s an entirely different topic.
Right here and now all that matters is if you’re lucky enough to have tickets to the game then you’ll be surrounded by Raider Nation. Of course the good news is that if you’re in the Bay and couldn’t find a seat then you’ll be able to watch from the comfort of your own home.
Now if only we could get the NFL to get rid of this stupid notion of the Chargers being the locally broadcasted team in SoCal. Then again, those bandwagon Bolt fans aren’t showing up so it looks like another blackout in San Diego. Funny how that works. Raiders and Charges have the same record yet it’s the powder blue babies that can’t seem to find the time to support their team.
Not worry, Charger fans. When the silver and black come to town, Raider Nation will be sure to help you sellout so you surfers can catch a few waves before tuning in at home for the fourth quarter.
