Picked up a few things to make some chicken fajitas tonight at the local Safeway, only to find Lester Hayes setting up a memorabilia table, wearing his familiar No. 37 and as gregarious as ever.
I introduced myself and a few minutes later left with my groceries plus a Hayes dissertation on what a terrific job Tom Cable is doing as head coach.
Hayes flashed four fingers and told me the Raiders were playing four quarters, flashed his two Super Bowl rings to show me what that could mean.
Lester was stunned to hear Denver was pummeling Kansas City 35-10 at halftime.
“Denver?,” he shrieked.
Then Hayes proceeded to get into a defensive stance and demonstrate to me how Chiefs cornerbacks were too up right and unable to turn and run quick enough, as opposed to Raiders corners, who had been schooled properly.
Hayes will be selling and signing various memorabilia into the evening at the Safeway on Dublin Blvd., in Dublin, CA, into the evening, with a portion going to a breast cancer fund.
