STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Oakland Raiders fans tried to have a pleasant time last night. They had a big game against Kansas City. And sportswriter Jimmy Durkan was among Raiders fans on a flight to that game. He reports what happened. The flight crew made an announcement that on this not-so-long trip, passengers consumed all the booze. They drank the plane dry. Hopefully, the plane was restocked in time for the return flight, since the Raiders lost last night 21-13. It's MORNING EDITION.
