There were too many to consider, but we’ve searched social media to find some of the best Mother’s Day tributes that the Philadelphia Eagles have to offer.
Sometimes, the best songs remind us of ourselves or certain situations we’ve been through. That’s why love songs will never go out of style. People will always fall in, out and back in love again. Then, there’s the women in our lives. There’s nothing like the love we got from mom. That’s true whether you’re working a nine-to-five job or you’re a member of the Philadelphia Eagles.
On May 12th, we celebrated Mother’s Day, and whether you did so by taking yours out to eat or thinking about yours with Tupac Shakur’s ‘Dear Mama’ on repeat, one thing’s certain.
For one reason or another, you had some thought and emotion course through your body on Sunday. Professional sports athletes are no different, and though we couldn’t post every single one of them, we wanted to share a few Mother’s Day offerings that put a smile on our face.
Take a look:
To some, this might qualify as a story that was better suited for yesterday, but we disagree here at ITI. Mother’s Day is just like Valentine’s Day, or Thanksgiving or Father’s Day for that matter.
There’s no reason to wait for a day to celebrate something that should be celebrated every day. We salute the mothers who put us on punishment, cheered for us and believed in us when we didn’t believe in ourselves.
We’re thankful for biological mothers, stepmothers, and grandmothers. We salute any woman who’s played the role of both father and mother. We’re thankful for the mothers who stepped into that role for a child that she didn’t physically give birth to.
We thank each and every one of you for every tear you’ve shared, every sacrifice, and every time you’ve had to be tough on us. It’s you who inspire us to be something greater than we could be by ourselves. You’re the reasons we get up out of our beds when we don’t feel like it.
Happy Mother’s Day from ITI. It’s not just on a Sunday in May. It’s every day.
