Cuban leader Fidel Castro has ended his reign as the country’s president, after 39 years of
terror faithful leadership. Castro citied his failing health as the main reason for him relinquishing power to his younger brother Raul. This transfer of power also means Al Davis wins the title of “Stubbornest Old Bastard In the World”.
Nearly 40 years ago, a young cuban dictator and a young AFL football team owner made a bet.
“The U.S. government hates you Fidel, you’ll be driven out of power any time now”, said a defiant Al Davis.
“The NFL is the dominant football organization in America, you will be forced out of business and your little team will dissolve”, said Fidel Castro.
The table was set. These two men would lead their respective organizations into insignificance. No matter how old, crusty, and decrepit Al and Fidel got, they would never relinquish their power. No matter how much their senile antics hurt others, no matter how much their closest advisors wanted to smother them with a pillow in their sleep, they would never back down and lose the bet.
But alas, Fidel just couldn’t do it anymore, Al Davis has emerged victorious in “Grumpy Old Men part 3″. That’s how we do it in Oaktown, just win baby.
