Top 10 List: What I Learned at the Raiders/Broncos Game in Oakland Last Night

Posted on: 09/9/19 11:05 PM | by Jonathan McKee

Last night we went to the Broncos game in Oakland…sitting in the nosebleeds!

I had heard numerous stories about Oakland fans, but this was my first opportunity to experience them firsthand.

Here’s my top list of what I observed:

10. Antonio Brown is not a popular fellow in Oakland

9. People on parole certainly do enjoy football

8. More Raiders players prayed at the beginning of the game than Broncos players.

7. A person can get high on second-hand smoke (and I hope I don’t need a drug test anytime soon)

6. Raiders fans don’t like cops

5. California + sun + September DOES NOT = warm in Oakland

4. Cheerleaders do not dress for warmth

3. The lower the ticket price of a seat the higher the consumption of beer

2. The prices I pay for popcorn and a soda at the movies is a SCREAMING DEAL!

1. The f-word can be used as a noun, adjective, verb, adverb, and a gerund.

Enjoy them Vegas!

  1. Too funny. As a huge Bronco fan your post is the highlight of my post game day. I attended a KC/Denver Monday night game once in KC and experienced much that same except for the parole and cop avoidance. Hope we find some offense and defense soon. Blessings on your ministry.

    Thankful my faith is in Jesus and not football hopes.

  2. Great post Bronco Fan. Sorry about your game. I go to a Broncos game in Denver with a great friend almost every year and I proudly wear my Packers jersey (I get a lot of confused looks, but nothing to be afraid of – great fans).

  3. I happened onto your blog searching for a pic of a Costco snack bar ice cream bar. (Take a moment. One for me, one for my homies.)
    Decided to read more.

    I had to laugh when I found this post. I grew up in a non sports-watching home, fell in love with a man who will watch anything that can be scored, judged, or timed. I had no exposure to football and on. our. honeymoon… decided to surprise my husband with tickets to a Raiders game- his favorite team.
    We were barely married for 24 hours and I was in those same nose-bleed seats, questioning all my life decisions that brought me to that very point. I experienced so many of your top ten list that day.
    Thanks for the trip down memory lane. I cringed a little.

    P.S. We celebrate our 17th anniversary next month.
