We trust that Oakland Raiders fans had a pleasant time last night.

They had a big game against Kansas City.

Sportswriter Jimmy Durkin was among Raiders fans on a flight to the game.

And he reports what happened: the crew made an announcement that on this not-so-long flight, passengers consumed all the booze.

They drank the plane dry.

Hopefully the plane was re-stocked in time for the return flight, since the Raiders lost last night 21-to-13.
