A Tribute To All The Sports Moms Out There

As we remind you to grab your cards and flowers for Mother's Day on Sunday — we are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to be in Mattoon this Mother's Day — we thought we might take a moment and remember some of the special mothers in the world of sport.

You, of course, have your eccentrics, your occasional crack addict, your "I Saved My Mom From Killing Herself" story and, in a touching tale, your "Stop Using Me In Your Campaign Literature!" bouquet.

But for our money, nothing can ever beat LeBron James' mom. Let's take a moment and remember the highlights of her drunk driving arrest last year.

• She was "driving in an erratic manner, weaving in and out of traffic at a high rate of speed."
• When they first tried to put handcuffs on her, she wrang herself free before she was sedated again.
• Once in the car, she kicked out the side window of the backseat.
• The police, exhausted with dealing with her, eventually sprayed her with mace.

So, Happy Mother's Day, everyone! Hopefully your mom will find a way to avoid the mace.
