    The Jokeraider”
    My excursion to tackle stadium number nineteen on the Quest for 31 took me to Oakland, California, home and head- quarters of Raider Nation – some of the rowdiest, most rabid fans in the National Football League. Raider fans are generally respectful of visitors, but if you plan to wear an opponent’s colors, be ready for some of the most vile and vicious verbal assaults to be tossed in your direction. Most of these, of course, will feature a colorful collection of expletives just to drive their point home. Raider Nation is a proud union of die-hards so best believe that every member encountered will make you well aware that visitors are not welcome at Overstock.com Coliseum. Now on the other hand, if you join the collective, your acceptance is immediate and any verbal javelins you happen to toss at visiting fans will be met with hearty laughs and a handshake – what a bunch of sweethearts. In all seriousness, it is friendly ribbing and fans keep it under control.
