It's Raider weekend! What does that mean? CAPTION Al Davis' photo time!

 Raider week brings out the best in all of us here in MHR, however, is there anyone in pro sports we love to hate more than the living dead himself?

The ancient, undead, madman of Oakland is still running the show in the East Bay, and BOY are we thankful for that!

 Once upon a time this man was considered a legend in the game. He was the Recievers coach for the Los Angeles Chargers from 1960-62. He was named Head Coach and General Manager of the Oakland Raiders in 1963 (at the age of 33 interestingly). He was named Commisioner of the American Football League in 1966, and as such, was instrumental in the merger into the NFL by signing many players away from the NFL.  Once the merger deal was done, Davis resigned as AFL Comissioner, and bought into the Raiders ownership.  It is hard to separate the success the Raiders enjoyed in the '60s, '70s and '80's from the "Managing General Partner" as he likes to be known.  Fortunately, it is also hard to separate the recent struggles the Raiders have endured from the "President of the General Partner" (his other favorite title).

  In 2007, Davis sold a minority stake in the Raiders for $150 million and said that he would not retire until he wins two more Super Bowls or dies.  

 My money is on the Grim Reaper!!

Time to punk the old man again. Let's see some creative captions for this one!
