Twice this week I've woken up to read about the death of an icon. First Steve Jobs and now Al Davis. I'm not over the death of Clarence Clemons, and now this? Both Jobs and Davis did things their own ways, the rest of the world be damned. Sometimes they were right, sometimes they were wrong, but they never bowed to others' opinions. People are saying reaction to the iPhone 4S is muted, people are disappointed, blah blah blah, and so far it's the best selling phone ever. Sometimes people pile on just for the sake of piling on. JaMarcus Russell was the biggest bust in history. Ping is a stupid add-on to iTunes. Whatever. I love my Apple toys and I love the Raider Nation. Loud and proud, baby. If I were on the Texans, I'd be worried about Sunday's game. The Raiders are going to bring it hard.
