Nellie's back, A's are rolling - life is good in Oakland

Don Nelson is back to coach the Golden State Warriors - playoffs, here we come. Art Shell is back with the Raiders. Billy Bean and Ken Macha both reversed field to return to the A's in recent years. Life is retro and life is good!

Here's my sports wishlist:

Bring back the Warriors uniforms from the 1990's RUN TMC era.
Re-name the team to reflect it's proud city: The OAKLAND Warriors.
Bring back my boy from Michigan, Chris Webber, to mend the fence, play a few years and retire a Warrior.

Jeff George should be released and never allowed back in the NFL.
Marcus Allen should sign a one-day contract to retire a Raider for life.

Same for Jose Canseco and Rickey Henderson retiring as Oakland A's.
If the A's win the World Series, Miguel Tejada and Jason Giambi should beg back into Oakland at reduced salaries. Boston can keep Johnny Damon and Keith Foulke; Chicago deserves to keep Jermaine Dye.

If only I could fix Mike Tyson's woes and all of my heroes would be whole again.
