Yeah, I know I'm shamelessly name-dropping and everything, and I know this is only a tangentially-related to the Raiders kinda thing, but I figure, hey, y'all are my homies, and a lot of peeps are around now for the last time until a few months from now ... so, I just thought I'd share now, before it happens :)
In July, my younger brother Jordan (also a hard-core member of the Raider Nation) will be marrying Bianca, the lovely daughter of former A's head coach Tony LaRussa, and yours truly will be the one performing the ceremony, which will be a very small, immediate-family-only event taking place somewhere on the coast, just south of San Francisco.
The lovely couple began dating around 4 years ago, while working together at the law firm of Gagen-McCoy, and have been 'dating in a serious fashion' ever since. Jordan finally got off his ass and popped the question in (I believe it was) January 2013, and Bianca accepted. We are all extremely excited to welcome her into the Valjalo family :)
Here's a pic of the two of them at me and my wife's wedding, back on 10/8/2011 (does that date ring any bells)? They are, of course, the two on the right ... everybody says he looks like Justin Timberlake, but with red hair ;) My other pimp-ass brother Justin (now one of the football coaches at San Ramon High) and his lovely wife Elizabeth (with my nephew Colton about to bust out) are on the left of the photo.
Once it actually happens, I'll post some pics of the festivities for my fellow Raider brethen on this thread, if anyone is interested. I'm fairly sure my future SiL is going to be looking pretty stunning on that particular day :)
