    Genuine fans take the best team moments with the less than great, and know that the games that are best forgotten make the good moments truly shine. This monumental book of the Oakland Raiders documents all the best moments and personalities in the history of the team, but also unmasks the regrettably awful and the unflinchingly ugly. In entertaining—and unsparing—fashion, this book sparkles with Raiders highlights and lowlights, from wonderful and wacky memories to the famous and infamous. Such moments include the "Sea of Hands" catch that helped the Raiders best the seemingly unstoppable 1974 Dolphins, the long passes of "The Mad Bomber," as well as the unresolved "Immaculate Reception" controversy and the infamous "Heidi Game" of 1968. Whether providing fond memories, goose bumps, or laughs, this portrait of the team is sure to appeal to the fan who has been through it all.
