If you're looking for Mother's Day coverage out there in the sports blogosphere, no one's going to do it any better than the Ladies...(.) They all asked their moms about athletes for whom they once had the hots.
The answers go from Dan Marino to Andy Pettite to Joe Namath to Pete Rose, who once tried to put his mack down on Lady Andrea's mom. Actually, I'm not sure that's the right term ... he sort of offered to pay her for sex. I guess Pete Rose kind of implied that Lady Andrea's mom was a whore. Which is unfortunate, because she probably isn't.
As for my mom, she was into John Elway (eh), Joe Theismann (which makes me want to take her Mother's Day gift back), and now that I think about it, she kind of had an odd thing for Rickey Henderson, too (AWESOME). Man, if things had worked out differently, I could be calling Rickey Henderson dad ... of course, he'd still be calling himself Rickey. But that's just the complex kind of relationship we'd have.
