A Message From The Preacher

Today I received a very inspirational e-mail from "The Preacher" that is worth sharing with the loyal Raider Nation. Enjoy!

Calico Jack,

Is there any way that we can get the word out before Monday night?

(See Below)

The Preacher

Do the Job!

It is time my brothers and sisters. It is Time! The new season has begun and it is time for the nation to see our Silver and Black warriors take the field. Time to see our soldiers unleash the dogs of war.

However, it is not just their time, but our time as well. Now is the time for the Raider Nation to stand up and do our job.

I can hear you say it now… I don’t have job… I’m just a fan …What job could I have?

Well, let the Preacher break it down for ya…

If you are going to the game your job is to disrupt the opposing offense. You will do this by screaming, banging and stomping your feet when the opposing offense comes to the line to run their plays. You will make noise, lots and lots of noise! You will show our enemies the power of the Nation, by bringing the thunder down.

Because I will tell you the truth, if the Nation comes out in strength, and brings the noise, then we can cause problems for our enemies. Remember, every time the opposing offense has a false start, missed block, calls a time out or has a receiver who runs a wrong route, then you have done your job.

You have helped our team. You have made a difference by simply bringing the noise. What? Did you just think that you were there to eat hot dogs and drink soda? No I say, No! Our Silver and Black warriors are depending on us to help them defend our home. They are calling upon you to bring the thunder when the time is right. So spread the word and tell everyone who is sitting around you. Tell them how they can make a difference during our home games. Let’s show our team that we are willing to do everything that we can to help them win.

Like Art says, “This home, nobody can come in here and handle us!!!”

For those of you who can’t go to the Black Hole, remember, you have a job as well…

If you cannot go to the game then your job is to gather with other members of the nation, watch the game, and roar when our warriors score. It doesn’t matter if you’re in Cali, New York, Japan, Germany, or China, make some noise and wake up your neighborhood! Let everyone know that you are a member of the Nation, and you’re proud of it.

So that’s the job… Are you up to it? Will you help defend our home and the Nation? Will you stand up and do the job?

I can’t wait until Monday when power of the Nation unleashed and the Raiders smack marty and his girls upside their little heads… It’s going to be a lot of fun. Until then, GO Raiders!!!

Editor's Note: I was already pumped up for our opener against the Chargers. The Preacher's sermon just put me over the top! The true believers (like The Preacher) are one of the reasons that I'm proud to be a card carrying member of the Raider Nation.

Silver and Black Forever,
Calico Jack
