The passing of Ray Guy has caused me a mystery..... I met him once in of all places, the breakfast nook at a Best Western motel in Grants, New Mexico. I introduced myself and told him that I thought he was the best punter ever. True. He kinda rolled his eyes like , "Yea, I've heard that one before.". So, to break the ice, I told him that I had a brother-in-law who was a Raider and he seemed to acknowledge that he knew the name.....So, after that we had a nice football conversation..... Seemed like a nice guy. So this morning after reading the sad news, I went on the internet to see if Guy and my brother-in-law ever played together....... The brother-in-law is nowhere to be found on ANY Raider roster! From 1960 on. He had a lifetime NFL pass that he could use at any game, anywhere, anytime. I went to many games with him. He was a really funny and nice guy.....VERY self-confdent! Everyone at the Oakland Coliseum knew him....First name basis. Anytime we went out to dinner in the East Bay area, people in the restaurants would crowd around him.....A real celebrity!... He always had his own table..... Everyone loved the guy!....I'm confused. I could get in touch with him but I don't want to cause any embarrassment. He looked like a football player. Big. Strong. Tall. The best decision he ever made was to dump my creepy sister.....Anyway, What do you think? ....Was he a Raider or a con-man? I not happy about this. 🤔
Also, I don't want to mention his name because he is a very successful businessman in the Bay Area and I don't want to cause embarrassment if he's a fake. Weird.
