Tim Brown - 1/09/10
Day 9 of Project 365. When you are a die-hard fan of a football team that's not in the playoffs, it can be hard to watch other teams take to the field in pursuit of that Super Bowl Trophy.
I am an Oakland Raiders fan. I bleed silver & black. I always have and I always will. I have Raiders jerseys, pajama pants, blankets...hell, I even have a Raiders tattoo. So you can probably imagine the joy I experienced a few years ago, when I went into a store that carried the Todd McFarlane sports figures and I saw the one for Tim Brown. Needless to say, I didn't leave the store without him.
Ever since, it has a place of honor on my bookshelf, forever watching the Raiders on TV just over my shoulder. Tim Brown is a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame this year and I'm hoping he makes it in.
I think it's time to put in my Raiders history DVD and reminisce about the old times...
