"Fortunately, I was shrewd enough to choose Oakland -- a decision that resulted,
less than three weeks after I made it, in a series of personal and professional disasters
ranging from massive slander and a beating by stadium-cops outside the Raider dressing
room, to total banishment from the field, locker room, press box, and for all practical
purposes -- because of the dark assumptions that would inevitably be made about any
player seen with me in public -- from any bar, restaurant, zoo or shotgun store in the Bay
Area frequented by any Raider players."

Hunter S. Thompson, The Great Shark Hunt

Oh! The Great Shark Hunt. When I used to get the train to work before an automobile became essential, I went through a spate of rereading Mr Thompson. Every day I would have to get off the train before getting to work because I couldnt stop laughing and was getting way too many nervous stares… I may have to dig out my copy.
