1) Wow, what a thing to wake up to.

2) I wonder who the third famous person will die next.

Al was a pioneer in NFL ownership in the 70's. Many people don't see it now because the Raiders have been so awful in the past decade. But he really took the NFL by storm back in the day.

R.I.P

Will be interesting to see how the Raiders react this season to this happening.

He may not have been in the spotlight but Bert Jansch died 3 days ago. Hugely innovative musician who influenced Paul Simon, Jimmy Page, Elton John & Neil Young.

Triple whammy of music, tech & sports.

If the Grim Reaper has a pattern, it would be George Lucas because like Steve Jobs and Al Davis, he has been a pioneer in his field, strong Bay Area roots, controversial, etc.

I actually rooted for the Raiders to win this game. Hugh Jackson makes the team more likable and easier to root for.

I thought for sure Al was too stubborn to die.
