league and serving as the manager's general partner they won two superbowls and one in los angeles and davis was championshipped as renegade and in ill health for sometime he died in his home early this morning. no one knew the man better than his first superbowl winning coach john madden. >> when they made al davis the coach of the raiders, he was the commissioner the league, they wanted a fighter and recruiter and a guy that would take on the nfl and they pick add perfect guy. al davis was leader of not only the raiders and not om the american football league but leader of all profootball. >> he has never gone with the trends and gone with what he feels is the best way to two and when he hired me he didn't hire me because i was hispanic, he hired me because i could
win. >> good football teams, fun football teams and i think that's his legacy of being able to build that, a little bit of a renegade and outlaw and i'll do it my way whether you like it or not. stanford's football team has high aspirations and new pack 12 member colorado did nothing to diminish them and tiger woods made his way to the stadium to see the game and max bergen comes up the middle to block the colorado field goal and bergen takes a hop and he is off to the races and bergen picks up a convey to keep from getting run down and 7-0 stanford and 13-0 after a quarter and andrew luck with a flawless day and makes it look easy to ryan hewitt and earlier the same combination, luck to hewitt from ten yards and

on the way to a four-goal period and the final score, this time nar din refuses to give up the puck and converting once again and the coyotes got a couple of goals and the sharks start the new season with a 6-3 opening night win. not in the lead but tiger woods continues to grab the attention at the fries.com tournament and shot back to back rounds in the 60s, not a bad day for a nature walk. tiger on number 11, the second hole and almost a routine birdie. tiger trying to get the swing and his putting and the whole game in sync and puting to save par and tiger shot the 68 and which means four under par and ernie ls with a two stroke lead and he shot a 67 and two back
