Bianca Tai, Tony LaRussa's Daughter, Becomes Raiders Cheerleader

St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony LaRussa got a surprise last week when his daughter announced her new career path.

Bianca Tai tried out for the Oakland Raiders cheerleading team and posted on twitter that she has become a 2011 Raiderette.

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

According to Bernie Miklasz from the Post-Dispatch, making the team wasn't truly a surprise to the family, "given her extensive training and background in dance."
