The curse of SigHansi Part 2: Confessions of a Tailgater
Sig Hansi here with another glimpse into the depths of my affliction. One of the keys to seeing your favorite professional sports team play live is to pump your expectations up to astronomical heights; this ensures that your ego has the maximum distance to plummet when your team crushes your soul and snatches defeat from the claws of victory. This emotional roller-coaster is usually achieved by participating in the age-old tradition of the 'Tailgater'. This is your opportunity to consume mass amounts of BBQ, adult beverages and/or anything else that might 'alter' your state of mind. Much like that ugly woman at the end of the bar, the more inebriated you become, the better she looks and the more you like your chances. Unfortunately, when you're a Raider fan, you usually just wake up hungover and emotionally scarred with foggy memories of some unnatural activities(much like a night out with Phipson). So, without further fanfare, I present you with a small diorama of a Raider's tailgater.
About this creation
It's a sunny Sunday in Oakland California as the unsuspecting spectators gathered to celebrate the impending clash of grid-iron gladiators...


Full of hope and optimism, they are blind to the most basic of facts: these are the Oakland Raiders. Owned by the Crypt Keeper, er, Al Davis, this team is a team of destiny. Unfortunately that destiny is to wallow in mediocrity and offer up yet another losing season...


A tailgater 'must' is the purchase of team merchandise. Spending obscene amounts of money is not merely reserved for greasy food and mass quantities of adult beverages, no, there is a veritable plethora of sidewalk vendors and street hustlers ready to provide you with cheap knock-off hats and t-shirts, complete with misspellings and poor renderings of your team's logo! Get yours today!



Fan#1: Wow dude, you really need to do something with your lettuce! What do you call that look, the 'Don King'? What do you use to get it like that, 'Soul Glo'?
Fan#2: You're f-ing hilarious! I was planning on gettin' a new lid, I just need the right one...

Fan#2: How's this?
Fan#1: Much better, now you won't have to keep answering questions about why you ruined Mike Tyson's career...


One thing is for certain: if your going to invite a greenhorn(s) to the game,it's best to properly prepare them for what they are about to experience, especially in Oakland...

SigHansi: Well Chris, I know you don't like football, but I'm glad you decided to come and see what it's all about. Good food and friends, that's how we roll!


SigNutty: Did your brother tell Chris what he put those brownies?
SigDawn: I'm not sure. I guess we're going to find out.


SigPhipson: Yeah Hansi, this isn't too bad. So you say these brownies are your own special recipe? *munch* They're delicious! *gulp* I think I'll have another one...Hey, here comes Shannon Young! Is he wearing a Broncos jersey?


SigHansi: Um, Chris, I really think you should slow down with those brownies...What the?! Did you say 'Broncos jersey'?!

Because what you tell them may very well save their lives!

SigYoung: Hey there mates! I made it! What are you all staring like that for?


RaiderFan#1: Who the hell does that guy think he is?!
RaiderFan#2: We're gonna shove that jersey so far up his rectum he'll be flossing with it!
RaiderFan#3: I can't believe I let you guys talk me into wearing this ridiculous costume...

But, THE most important thing to remember when priming yourself up for the game...

Pirate#1: YeeHaw! Thish ish gonna be oshum! *hic* We're gonna kick their ashes! *belch*
Pirate#2: Hell yeah! And if we don't, we can just beat the crap outa the fans of the other team! I call that a 'win,win'!
Pirate#3: Hey, has anyone seen Pirate#4, I mean Bob?

Moderation is an absolute must!

Pirate#4(Bob):*yack* *barf* *wretch*
Pirate#1: I'm sure he'sh around here shumwhere...*hic*

Here are few individual shots of the cars and such. The bikes are showing the kickstands that I added, not much else.











Fourth dimension commentary:
This is part 2 of my Curse trilogy. The layout for part 3 was actually finished first and was awaiting all the figs from this and a CrackLink order of letters before pics could be taken. The use of Shannon Young and Chris Phipson are merely a lame attempt to draw attention to myself and a simple way to get a cheap laugh(plus, they are favs of mine). Anyway, I hope you get a chuckle and stay tuned for part 3, where we find out exactly what affect those brownies had on Cris...In the meantime, keep on brickin' on!~H

Quoting The Pied Pauper $$ Sorry to hear about the Raiders owner Al Davis. He will be missed by all.
Yeah, it was an emotional game today but the boys managed a victory to honor the old man. He was an iconic figure in both the AFL and NFL, leaving a lasting impression on the game that will be felt for years to come. RIP, Mr. Davis, RIP.~H

Quoting Calvin B. Hans, I have a question, would wearing a Boise state Broncos or San Fransisco 49ers jersey get me Beaten up?
49ers jersey? I'd beat you up myself! LOL They wouldn't care about the Boise State jersey, but as a die-hard Duck fan, I'd have to beat you for that too! LMAO Actually, Raiders fans get their reputation from a select few tools who can't behave themselves and the fact that gang-bangers wear Raiders gear. Being a white boy from Oregon who has attended multiple games, I can assure you that the vast majority of fans are down to Earth, good people. I still don't recommend wearing an opposing team's jersey;^)~H

Oh, how I love the introduction! I finally understood football for the first time! It's about finding lame excuses to eat cheap junk food and drink lots of beer. Sign me up to be a Raiders fan!

Quoting Alex Fojtik Great laughs! Are you familiar with "Its always sunny in philadelphia?" I can't stop thinking of the episode called "The world series defense" when I look at this. You can stream the episode for free from FX's website. I live about 15 miles from Oakland and I gotta say your depiction of Raider's fans had me rolling.
Yes, Always Sunny is one of my favorites! As for the fans, while not as crazy, I am one of them, so it wasn't hard. The figs practically made themselves! Thanks for the comments!~H

This is a great creation that reminds me of all the tailgate parties before the University of Arizona games when I was kid. They did not win very often either, and this year, they really crushed my spirit, so I understand your plight. Now, those nutty Raider fans you managed to create are perfect! HAHAHAHA, I live in the Bay and see them all the time, very odd bunch that, but loyal to their team! Crypt Keeper, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I tried a similar tactic in my Blockage 2 by making references to other builders; have to see how that turns out! Wow, what a long winded comment, cheers!

Thank you for your low expectations, they're sooo easy to live down to!:^) Sorry for the mix up there, you deserve so much better. hahaha!~H

Quoting Hans I figured that American football was too much of a girls game for you guys...
Who are "you guys?" Washingtonians? I think you're confusing me with Shannon Ocean. Of course, why would I expect a Raiders fan to get anything right... hahahaha!

Quoting Shannon Young I'll forgive your dressing me in a Broncos jersey if I can have some of those brownies. (As a loyal Seahawks fan who grew up with the Raiders and Broncos as bitter AFC West division rivals, I still take pleasure in seeing those teams struggle... even though my team got moved to the NFC years ago!)
The brownies are in the mail! I never hated the Seahawks like I do the Broncos or Chargers, Largent was a total stud! As far as our struggles go, until The Crypt Keeper dies, you should have years of joy to come!:^)For some reason I figured that American football was too much of a girls game for you guys...~H
