First of all, both mayors will likely feel a political necessity to take a few players from their hometown teams -- and the Raiders are a squad that actually figure to have things start going downhill from the current point of head coach Tom Cable allegedly putting his assistant in the hospital.
Second, Dellums may yet be a closet Roto-geek ... but we're not betting on it. Hopefully one of his aides will be there to explain the ins and outs of Fantasy sports and to him and keep Dellums from wasting picks on Daryle Lamonica, Fred Biletnikoff, or current octogenarian George Blanda.
Finally, Gavin -- or some of Gavin's people -- have obviously put a fair amount of thought into this. The San Francisco team easily has the best nickname -- Barbary Coast Bombers. Hell, that's a LOT better than the United Football League's real-world choice of "California Redwoods," isn't it? Besides, we heard the real reason Eric Jaye got booted out of Camp Newsom in favor of Garry South was the svengalis' unresolvable argument over whether or not LaDanian Tomlinson is a good pick or not. Jaye thought LT has a little bit left in the tank -- but South thought they were both washed up. You know how that went.
We'll keep you up to date on who drafts the best team -- and if anyone wants to send us renderings of what a Gavin Newsom-inspired football team's helmet might look like (think L'Oreal) we'd love to showcase your art.
