As a huge momma’s boy who would be lost without her, I want to thank all the mom’s out there for being awesome. Especially all the moms who drove us to practice and games, packed our bags, washed our jerseys, and were our #1 fans through good performances and bad ones. This blog is dedicated to some of the more notable mother moments within sports, but if your reading this now, then your mom is the best mother in sports. This isn’t a blog to spark debate. Mothers can’t be compared like an MJ v.s. LeBron debate on First Take, they are too appreciated, especially on this day.
Dallas Braden No-No on Mother’s Day
The only thing the MLB is good at, besides cheating, is celebrating Mother’s Day. The pink bats, hats, etc, it’s great. Throwing a no-hitter any day is incredible, but there is something special about doing it on Mother’s Day. Braden lost his mother his senior year of high school, so he celebrated with his grandmother emotionally after the game. Goosebump moment.
Kevin Durant MVP Speech
Put your personal opinions about KD and his snakeness aside, his MVP mom speech is a tear jerker. Wanda Durant is also a character of a mom. She’s always chirping the media and backing her son, despite his burner accounts. That’s a great mom in my book.
Serena Williams Playing Pregnant
Remember when people were trying to say that Serena was on PED’s cause she got added blood flow from being pregnant? Super hilarious, but props to doing anything athletic while being pregnant. I wouldn’t even do laundry or take out the trash if I was pregnant, probably not great for the baby. Shout out Serena.
Mrs. McNabb in the Campbell’s Soup Commercials
Campbell’s Chunky, Eats Like a Meal. Fills You Up Right.
Mrs. McNabb & Donavan > Dak Prescott and his hardo brothers.
If your son is the GOAT, then that automatically makes you the GOAT. Mrs. Jordan has been awesome in the MJ docs, and without her, MJ would’ve quit hoops. She was also pivotal in the Nike deal, call it Air Deloris.
Leigh Anne Tuohy
Sandra Bullock crushes it in The Blindside. Incredible movie, so many great mom moments.
Side note: Sandra Bullock is also a great mom in Birdbox
There are plenty of great mom moments in sports, but moms do so much more than back up their athlete kids, they do it all. Happy Mother’s Day to all the momma’s out there.
