Al Davis (July 4, 1329 – October 8, 2011)


The NFL sadly lost one of its biggest characters in years when the great Al Davis passed away this past Saturday.  From cultivating Mad Max fandom to wearing flesh masks to inexplicably trying to field an Olympic 400-meter relay team for wide receivers, we will never see a persona quite like old Al.  A true Raidah indeed.

In true Sports Hernia fashion, here's a repost of the faces of Al.

Thanks for making the No Fun League more enjoyable.

    “The Autumn Wind,” preceded in this clip by the narration of a poem by the legendary John Facenda, was in my head all weekend:

    Once again, step away from the caffeine and try not to throw and break and burn furniture, even though I am confident also Al Davis would be proud of you if you did as well.

    RIP Al Davis

    A man who so often dressed like a pimp HAD to have a stable of whores he kept around for his own personal Raiding. I truly feel sorry for whatever poor, anonymous women made up that group.
