Keith Smith the "Crusader Raider" visits Oakland annually to see his favorite American football team the Oakland Raiders play. This April 2011 my wife Lisa and I (Randy) were fortunate enough to be able to visit Keith in his home town of London. Keith and Big Dave Chapman (also a die-hard Raiders fan) showed us a great time for the four days we were there.
In the first part of the video, Keith chatted with fellow English Raider fans Raider Nik and Big Dave Chapman.
We also had the opportunity to attend an "English Football" game featuring Keith and Dave's favorite English football team, Leyton Orient. We had a great time, even getting to go into the team locker room prior to the game. We were shaking hands with the team and chatting with them as the coach came in to give them their final plans for the game.
We show you some video of Keith interviewing a few Raider fans inside the stadium just before the start of the game. Keith chats with Adam, Les, Keith's daughter Kellie and Big Dave's brother Richard.
After Leyton Orient won this match by a score of 2 to 1, we had a great time having a few drinks in the Leyton Orient "Supporters Club"...even the team captain had a pint with us! He agreed to become a member of the Raider Nation, so we'll be getting some Raiders gear over to him.
Our London adventure will be continued on our next videocast, Episode #65, where we will have more interviews with English Raider fans and continue the postgame celebration.
