If I Followed Al Davis and The New Raider Way

Jon YorkContributor IFebruary 3, 2009

I'd buy a 500 horsepower engine, but have no car frame to hold it up.

Even if I had a top-of-the-line computer in one corner of my house, I'd pay twice as much for a Tandy to put in the other corner of the house.

I would quickly realize the error of my computer decision and throw the Tandy away.

If I had several nice pairs of pants but no shoes, I would buy more pants.

I'd go grocery shopping with no idea of what I'm cooking for dinner.

I'd stop by KFC just before closing, hoping they'd have some scraps to hand out.

I'd go to school with my kids because I am sure the teachers don't know what they're talking about.

I'd love the History Channel.

I'd buy flood damaged cars.  I know they're junk now, but at one time they ran great and maybe, just maybe...

I'd love the old Dodge Challenger—it isn't much on agility and costs a lot to keep on the road, but it sure goes fast in a straight line.

If there was a foul smell coming from inside my house, I'd just ignore it. After all, once I find a good wife she'll take care of it. I'm not married, but I wonder who's at KFC right now?

I'd pass gas around my family. They are loving and loyal and will stick with me no matter how smelly I make things.

And finally, I'd wake up right now and take a good look at things. What I've done, what I plan on doing, and what really is the best thing to do for my historically great team with the best fan base in sports.
