Tony La Russa's Daughter A Raiderette, Cheerleaders Everywhere Watch Their Backs

This is perhaps the only chance I will ever have to link Breaking Schmooze: Bianca La Russa, daughter of St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa, has made the Oakland Raiders' cheerleading squad. To all Raiderettes out there, I have a single jot of advice: Watch your backs.

Tony La Russa's managerial style can best be described as intense, and while I'm sure Bianca has done her best to disguise that trait to this point I refuse to believe that the apple fell very far from the tree in this case.

Ask Dusty Baker: Bianca La Russa is going to get into your head, fellow dancers. She'll intimidate you without you realizing it; she'll invent dancing configurations you didn't even realize were possible. Before September she'll be coaching the Raiders from the shadows, and by December she'll have Al Davis's ear, which will come off in her hand while she is telling him her latest nefarious scheme to draft somebody other than a really fast wide receiver in the first round of the NFL Draft.
