Behold the glory that is Mark Davis, son of the late Al Davis

Al Davis son Mark Davis Sam McKinney
We're halfway through our sixth year of the Hernia's existence and somehow today is the first time we have ever laid our tender eyes on Mark Davis, son of the late Al Davis.  This could very well be the greatest worst hair we've stumbled upon since famously being blindsided by Brian Engblom's appalling Brian Bozworth mullet/toupee/rat's nest. 

What a coup.  And while we already miss Al dearly, we're more than prepared to embrace the existence of this ginger goblin who absolutely played the role of Sam McKinney on Diff'rent Strokes.  We don't even need to bother looking it up.

    Wow what a find. No wonder we’ve never seen him on ESPN. It’s great you are back and have not even broken stride with that “ginger goblin” line in there too.

    You are right about the greatest worst hair. I’ve never seen a kitchen bowl-cut combined with a mullet.

    And well as for his face, on perhaps a serious note, I have to wonder if there is something wrong with him.

    It’s time for the Raiders to move on and forward, but can they?

    Ginger Goblin it is. Well done, TSH.

    And this explains so much more about the Ginger Goblin:

    As far as the Raiders go as an organisation, well, may I refer you again to one of the key teachings of “Heartbreak Ridge”?:

    I haven’t seen a Beatle wig like that since the 60’s, and never a ginger one.
    Herman’s Hermits?
    Are we sure Al was his daddy?
    More like Donnie Trump!
    Good luck Raiders….good luck!

    These are some very good points and questions here. We need more of these kinds of insights here too.

    I’m not sure he has quite the Leno chin to qualify for Herman’s Hermits though:

    But given that we cannot see with his mope on to go with the mop-top, perhaps Mark Davis does have also those British teeth?

    I defer to the Hernia Committee for a ruling.
