| Interesting Story - Raiders
& 49er Fans
A primary teacher starts a new job at a school in Oakland and, trying to make
a good impression on her first day, explains to her class that she is a Raiders
fan. She asks her students to raise their hands if they, too, are Raiders fans.
Everyone in the class raises their hand except one little girl.
The teacher looks at the girl with surprise and says: "Mary, why didn't
you raise your hand?"
"Because I'm not a Raiders fan," she replied.
The teacher, still shocked, asks: "Well, if you're not a Raiders fan, then
who are you a fan of?"
"I'm a 49er's fan, and proud of it," Mary replied.
The teacher could not believe her ears. "Mary, why are you a 49er's fan?"
"Because my mom and dad are from San Francisco, and my Mom is a 49er's fan
and my dad is a 49er's fan, so I'm a 49er's fan too!"
"Well," said the teacher, in an annoyed tone. "That's no reason
for you to be a 49er's fan. You don't have to be just like your parents all of
the time. What if your mom was a prostitute and your dad was a drug addict and
car thief, what would you be then?"
Mary smiled, "I'd be a Raiders fan!"
