If you were reading AP way back in the day (2007), you may have caught our interview with Mayor Funkhouser. If you recall, his favorite sports moment:

I couldn’t tell you the year, but I watched an NCAA basketball tournament final when Bill Walton played for UCLA. I was kind of a Walton fan, and he had a run where I believe he shot 100 percent from the floor, rebounding, shot blocking. UCLA won, but just barely. It was the most remarkable single performance I’ve ever seen.

So the Mayor's first love may not be football but I think he's got a good shot of long as he reads Arrowhead Pride!
