History Lesson

Last night on the NFL Network, it reran the series on the history of the AFL, and I caught about half an hour of one episode. It was a revelation.

I know no one is going to believe this without seeing it themselves, but I swear it's true. The young Al Davis of the mid-1960s was just as creepy looking as the undead Al Davis who stalks the earth in 2011. Maybe even creepier looking. There is nothing but nothing behind Davis' eyes in every film clip of him, especially when he's speaking directly into a camera.

Or maybe I'm looking at this backwards, and it's just that in 1965, Davis was not just coach and general manager of the Oakland Raiders, he also was the world's most nattily-dressed and handsomest zombie.
