Raiders Fans, Apparently Thirsty, Drink All Of Airplane’s Booze On Flight To KC

It sounds like Oakland Raiders fans traveling to Kansas City for Thursday night’s big matchup with the Chiefs will be, to borrow a phrase from Tom Brady, nice and lubed up for kickoff.

Raiders fans are notoriously rowdy, and it’s probably not a huge surprise, but some fans — a lot of fans, maybe? — are aided by a little alcohol. Or, in the case of Raiders fans flying to KC for the game, a lot of alcohol.

The Bay Area News Group’s Raiders beat writer Jimmy Durkin tweeted Wednesday that his flight from Oakland to Kansas City ran out of alcohol. Presumably, there was a Raiders fan or two on that flight.

The crazy thing is that flying from Oakland to Kansas City isn’t even that long of a flight. According to Google, a nonstop flight to KC lasts 3 hours and 20 minutes, which apparently is enough time for Raiders fans to drink an airplane dry.
