Merry belated Christmas, everyone. My name is Svea & I was born, raised & still live here in central Ontario, Canada. I have been a Raiders fan for nearly 20 years now - the day Charles Woodson became a Raider so did I. My alarm clock every morning is The Autumn Wind and every single time I hear it I get the chills (living in Canada might help in that, too). Of course since 1998 there have been many more bad days than good, and every year (or sometimes every loss) I tell myself it will make it that much sweeter when the Super Bowl is ours again. I truly believe the Raider Nation, while the most loyal, is the most menopausal fan base in all of sports, but it keeps things interesting. I thought forums like this one ceased to exist, so I'm looking forward to the conversations, irrational rambling, salt & jokes to come. Many thanks to @Crow for the invite. Find me on Twitter under the same username if you so prefer.
