    Last year, Las Vegas had no professional teams. Now they're gonna have two by the end of the decade.

    Thanks, surrender.

    If your spouse, were to say to you, that he or she wanted a divorce…but if they said, ‘I want a divorce in two years because I found someone better but they’re not available until then, so we’re going to continue living together until then and I’m asking you to love me unconditionally in the meantime,’ welcome to life as an Oakland Raiders fan.

    That's assuming the A's stay put. They would have moved years ago, but the Giants block any moves San Jose, and the stadium deal in Fresno fell through. While they have a strong fanbase in Oakland, Montreal probably could support another baseball team, not to mention a city like Nashville or Indianapolis could as well.

    This was what the Oilers tried to do, they weren't originally set to move to Tennessee until the 1998 season but things got so bad that they had to speed it up and get moved a year earlier, people completely stopped going to games, the radio network was disbanded early in the 96 season, all the games were blacked out on television, it was pretty much like they didn't even exist that year. They were actually a pretty decent young team that year, finished 8-8 despite all the drama. Something I never realized until recently was that Gary Walker the defensive tackle played for the last couple years of the Houston Oilers and was picked up in the expansion draft by the Texans, so he played the very last games in the Astrodome and the very first games in Reliant(NRG), I believe the only player that played for both the Houston Oilers and the Texans(if I remember correctly he had a safety in the first Texans game against Dallas in 02).

    If your spouse made you feel like shit for fifteen years straight by not performing. You probably would have stopped supporting them by year five.
