So, Grant and I woke up this morning at 7:00 am Central Time, 5:00 Pacific. We left our hotel in Appleton, Wis and drove three and a half hours to Midway Airport in Chicago where we hopped on a plane for Oakland. We picked up our car and Grant dropped me off on Hegenberger Road where I walked into the Coliseum for the Raiders home opener. I am sitting in the press box next to Phil Barber. What an exciting day. I hope it’s an exciting game. It’s good to be alive.
