Today is Mother’s Day and I hope every Mom, everywhere has a wonderful day. It’s a day we all make sure to send flowers, plan a dinner out, send a card, or just do our best to make sure Mom has a great day. In the NFL, every game is Mother’s Day. Whenever on camera, players are always saying “Hi Mom”, “Thanks Mom”, or “I love you, Mom”.

Moms make you feel better when you’re down, put the band aid on your scraped knee, or fix you chicken noodle soup when you’re sick. Moms can be embarrassing when they’re the ones screaming, “That’s my son”, even when you’re sitting on the bench. Mom’s shower us with love, praise, attention, and affection. Make no mistake, Dads are great, but you always think of Mom.

To follow this up, I took to Twitter (so remember, these answers had to be in 140 characters or less) and asked Bengals players, “Why do players always make sure to say “Hi Mom” or “Thanks Mom”, but not Dad? I told them to have fun with it and they had a good time.

Here are their responses:

Dre Kirkpatrick- Its kind of like an unspoken rule. Mom comes 1st & dad just kind of falls in line. lol

 

Dontay Moch- tuff question. The only answer I could give to that is that women/moms are more affectionate then dad.

    @BigLouBrown410 Sometimes a Dad is the last one to speak up. But, they are silently proud. It will be eventually verbalized.
