Football season isn’t even underway, and already the Raider Nation is planning a massive invasion of the Meadowlands when the Oakland Raiders take on the New York Jets on 8 December 2013.
Does anyone remember Heidi?
This is what we know so far …
Two HUGE sections of the stadium have been blocked for the Raider Nation by the Silver and Black Empire Boosters of New York.
The DC Metro Raiders have set up a room block for the game.
The Florida Bay Raiders Boosters will be there in force.
And this is FIVE MONTHS before the game!!!
Rumour has it that Raiders fans will be holed up at the Sheraton Meadowloands in East Rutherford, New Jersey, and Executive Days Inn in North Bergen, New Jersey.
And they will be partying in NYC at Peter Dillons Bar at 130 East 40th Street, New York, New York.
“This will be the largest gathering of Raider fans in the Meadowlands since … EVER!” posts one excited Oakland Raiders fan on Facebook
“Can’t wait It’s gonna be a blast!” posts another enthusiastic fan.
All of which begs the question … will there be any Oakland Raiders fans from Hong Kong in attendance? And what about Canada? Mexico? Britain? Japan?
When all is said and done, the Raider Nation knows no national boundary!
Let’s paint NYC Silver and Black!
