Re-starting blog; Make-or-break for Raiders, maybe Del Rio

There’s that old saying about the band getting together. It ain’t that but I’m thinking of starting up the blog again. Not sure why and not sure completely what about but I think I’m going to start putting down some things I’m thinking. Here’s what’s crossing my mind now:

—Great sports night coming up. We’ve got Raiders game, baseball playoff game, Oklahoma City playing the Knicks and then the Lakers-Clippers game. I’m sure I forgot a game. Can’t remember.

The Raiders’ game is huge. They’re 2-4 and were supposed to contend for a Super Bowl. Instead, their offense has been horrible, and people are starting to point the finger at coach Jack Del Rio and offensive coordinator Todd Downing. If Raiders lose tonight against Kansas City, the path to the playoffs is maybe nothing less than a run-of-the-table.

Big night for Del Rio, who will be hard-pressed to downplay the significance of a loss … should it happen.

— I want Dodgers-Yankees.

—Still obsessing about the Colangelo’s getting to run the 76ers these days.
