Oakland Raiders: Strange Patterns, Strange Connections and Strange Love for Team

I am thinking positive thoughts about the Oakland Raiders. So, I went to Home Depot to purchase supplies for my patio and deck to get ready for my tailgate parties in my own backyard. While shopping for a new barbecue pit and ceiling fan, a lady named Becky helped me.

She didn't know that she was helping an Oakland Raiders fan move forward in preparation for the 2011 season. When I finished my search for equipment it seemed like she followed me outside to the parking lot. She asked, "Have you looked at the moon.

Those Hamsa have a chai symbol on them, and the number for chai is also 18. I thought, "Aren't these strange connections and coincidences?"

So, I conjecture in a loose and playful way that since the perigee is the largest since 1993, ...
