James Jones Fumbles Twice in One Play, Because He’s a Raider (Tweet and GIF)
A James Jones fumble isn’t the rarest thing in the world. A James Jones fumble twice in one game isn’t even that rare. But twice in the SAME PLAY? That’s some quintessentially Raiders luck/skill right there.
That’s exactly what happened as the Raiders played the Houston Texans and demonstrated just how wayward the Oakland Raiders are. This year and every year.
Here’s a GIF of the goings on. We can’t match music up to GIFs, but if you just quietly hum the Benny Hill theme “Yakkety Sax” to yourself, I think you’ll have a pretty good time. Don’t worry about your coworkers. They aren’t even paying attention. Go ahead. Hum it.

Even the Raiders had to laugh about it. Because otherwise, they’d cry:
So um…James Jones made a great catch. Fumbled. Picked it up and gained more yards. Then fumbled again. Texans recovered.

That’s what you get for playing on a baseball diamond during football season. What is this, 1987? I understand that it’s an undue burden to have taxpayers finance two $1 billion stadiums, but HAVE TAXPAYERS FINANCE TWO STADIUMS. How can a football team take itself seriously in these circumstances? Try not to trip on first base, guys.
