Thanks to Mark from West Side Slant and Scott from Bucs Stats, whho tipped this story of a prisoner, whose last words were Go Raiders.
Does this even surprise anybody? Like you have to decide if this is even news at this point. What else is this guy going to say other than maybe "Go Dodgers?"
The best part was this statement released by the Raiders today.
The Raiders organization would like to say that we are saddened by the sudden passing of Robert Charles Comer. He was a true Raiders fan. By that, we mean that he spent a lot of time in jail, like most of our great fans. Prison walls cannot contain the excitement over Raiders football.
The Raiders are pleased that Comer's last words were "Go Raiders" which shows the greatness of the Raiders organization. To our knowledge nobody has ever been put to death uttering the words, "Go Seahawks" or "Go Lions." That's because the Raiders are the most fearsome organization in the world. Though he leaves our world and his Earthly body, the Arizona prison system can't kill the spirit of the Raiders, who will return to greatness under Lane Kiffin. As for his victim, we hear he was a snitch and a Raiders Hater, anyway, so it's all good. Bless Robert Charles Comer as the Raiders will dedicate the 2007 season to his memory.
