Run Run R.I.P.

~ George "Run Run" Jones shows us what Championship hardware looks like ~

Run Run died of an apparent heart attack at the team headquarters yesterday.

I am saddened to realize he will not be here in body for the next one; however, Run Run's spirit has always been a part of the Raiders and will always be. Like Jim Otto and Al Davis, you can't think "Raider" and leave out this man who has been on the sidelines since '63.

Here's one of Run Run (front row, 2nd from right) back in his roller derby days with the Bombers before he joined the Raiders (yes, hard to imagine but there was a time before Run Run was a Raider).

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Your loss is ours also.

Here's betting we clock the Rams today with a fist full o'rings for Run Run Jones!!!

A sticky thanks to Raider Dave for the Bombers pic.
