This Fan Is Still Hot After Raiders' Icy Performance

January 01, 1994

Poor Raiders--they lost to Green Bay in sub-zero weather. Was it their fault? No. They just wanted to be home on Christmas Eve. So they waited until Christmas Day to take off for Green Bay and never practiced on the frozen Green Bay football field.

The poor babies. Nick Bell said his pinkies were cold and he couldn't hold onto the ball. He carried the ball seven times and gained 14 yards. Then he cried during the second half, "They wouldn't put me back in even after I put my gloves on."

Did the Raiders test the field before the game? No. They just wore regular cleats, not tennis shoes like Green Bay. Well, I hope they had a merry Christmas Eve by staying home until the day before the game.
