Yahoo! Fantasy Football Mayoral Face-Off

August 12th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

While I haven’t found much success drafting Raiders heavy fantasy teams over the past few years, Oakland Mayor Ron Dellums may have a better chance with Yahoo’s “Mayoral Face-Off Challenge.” Yahoo has managed to gather Mayors from around the country to get into a Fantasy Football league where the winner takes home $15,000 for the city.

C’mon Dellums, do it for the Raiders.

Fantasy Football Mayoral Face-Off

Sunnyvale, Calif., August 12, 2009 – Yahoo! Sports, the web’s leading sports site and home of the #1 fantasy football game, will kick off its 12th fantasy football season by fostering some friendly competition among mayors from big football cities across the nation.  The Yahoo! Sports Mayoral Face-off competition matches mayors head-to-head each week of the fantasy football season, which kicks off on September 10 and concludes on December 28.  The winning mayor takes home $15,000 for the local non-profit sports program of his or her choice. And in a battle for civic pride, a second $15,000 donation will be awarded to the city with the most votes from fantasy fans.

Mayors who are putting their football prowess on the line for this competition include:

o Byron Brown (Buffalo, NY)

o Jim Schmitt (Green Bay, WI)

o Mark Funkhouser (Kansas City, MO)

o R.T. Rybak (Minneapolis)

o Ron Dellums (Oakland, CA)

o Mick Cornett (Oklahoma City, OK)

o Buddy Dyer (Orlando, FL)

o Luke R. Ravenstahl (Pittsburgh, PA)

o Kevin Johnson (Sacramento, CA)

o Gavin Newsom (San Francisco, CA)

o Pam Iorio (Tampa Bay, FL)
