Raider MondayPosted by admin on September 21, 2020 Blog | Parody Songs | Videos | No comments
Monday, September 21, 2020 will forever be remembered as “Raider Monday.” The new Las Vegas Raiders, the latest professional sports franchise to set down roots near the Strip was ready for its giant NFL coming out party.
An all to familiar story. A two billion dollar stadium. A legendary franchise. A city that, up until the arrival of the NHL’s Golden Knights in 2017, had been starved for professional sports. And while hockey and the WNBA are pretty impressive. Let’s be honest, they do not have the same grandeur and spectacle that comes with the National Football League.
Monday Night Football was to showcase it all. Allegiant Stadium was sparkling. The Air Force Thunderbirds took flight all to a packed house of zero. It could have gone worse. Fortunately, the silver and black came out on top, defeating Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints 34-24 behind a three touchdown performance by Raider QB, Derek Carr.
I don’t know why The Bangles “Manic Monday” came to mind. It’s not exactly the most masculine of songs. It worked in my head so I put a video together for it to celebrate “Raider Monday.”
