Tyler Hawkins dons his Raiders jersey and authentic helmet.
I am the Raiders biggest fan because, to me, the Raiders represent an attitude and a look I feel I can relate to, and their mystique is something I want to be a part of. The Raiders have always been about individuality, all for one and one for all.

I identify with the Silver and Black and I wear my Raiders hoodie every day with pride as well as my hat to let other people know who my team is. I also wear a Raiders watch because, to me, it is always RAIDER TIME!
I'll explain why I like the Raiders like this -- I did not choose the Raiders, they chose me. I do stand up comedy all over Canada and parts of the U.S. and I always wear my Raiders hat when I go on stage. I even have an authentic Raiders helmet! In 2008, I went to see the Raiders play the Patriots in Oakland. It was one of the coolest experiences I have ever had. The intensity at that stadium when you walk in and you can hear people screaming RAIDERS is quite awesome.
I have both white and black jerseys, but you can take jerseys off. You can't change the color of a heart that bleeds Silver and Black! That's permanent.
Tyler will receive a 3'x5' Raiders logo flag and a photo of and autographed by Raiders Hall of Famer Willie Brown. Click here to find out how to enter to win!
