Those who follow American football may know the name Al Davis. He was one of the most notable individuals in the leagues history and is the person who made the league what it is today. We lost one of the most notable individuals in computers earlier in the week and now one of the greats from football. Sad week.

Post 3+ Months Ago

and with just a touch of irony as the two have something in common (sort of).

Kenny "Snake" Stabler who played for the Raiders, years ago but under Al's ownership is from Foley, AL (where I was born and raised).

About 10 miles away (same county) in Robertsdale, AL where my family lived for a couple of years, I attended 1st and 2nd grade and Tim Cook was in 3rd and 4th the same two years, at Robertsdale School. I say Robertsdale School because the towns (even county) were SO SMALL and rural that kindergarten through 12th were on the same small campus (same with Foley School.

(and in my opinion, Al was to the NFL, what The Bear was to the SEC. Two great men)
