Bianca LaRussa: Yup, Tony's Daughter is an Oakland Raider Cheerleader

Bianca LaRussa, welcome to the Oakland Raider family. Tony LaRussa's tenure as an Oakland A's manager brought a lot of good to Oakland. He led the A's to three straight World Series appearances and won one of them. And even though LaRussa's last season as manager in Oakland was 1995 that tenure is still bearing Bay Area fruits. 

As Ozraider first fanshotted for us, Tony LaRussa's daughter, Bianca, is now a Raiderette. This comes to us via her own Twitter account:

A goal and a dream come true- I'm a 2011 Raiderette! I'm so excited to rep an organization that does so much good.

Check out what @ did last year for @. This is part of why I'm stoked to cheer this team on!!

And now I know I have something in common with Bianca. We are both huge fans of the Raiders because of all the good they have done for pussycats. I am sure many of you are here for the same reason, right?

Okay, okay you got me. I had no idea the Raiders had done anything cats, dogs, birds or any other animals. However, I will admit that as my Raider fanhood matured to adolescence I did have a passing interest in the Raiderettes. So here is to a story rekindling that "interest" and providing a welcome break from the legal mumbo-jumbo of the bickerings of rich people. Jump over for some lil' LaRussa pics.
