Imagine doing the cooking for a future NFL pro. Imagine all of the laundry. Imagine all of the time spent driving to practices and games. Imagine the million other things a mother does for her future pro.
Now multiply it by two!
Identical twins Devin (Patriots) and Jason (Titans) McCourty are NFL stars. And they have their Mom to thank for it.
And we thank their Mom, Phyllis McCourty, for sharing some awesome stories and pictures with us about Devin and Jason. Happy Mother's Day Mrs. McCourty!
PHYLLIS McCOURTY (Mother of Devin & Jason McCourty)
Q: What is your favorite Mother's Day memory you have of your sons?
A: I'd like to start by saying "Happy Mother's Day" to the Moms out there. My favorite Mother's Day memory was when they were 9 years old, they came into my room early that morning, wished me a "Happy Mother's Day" and started singing the song "Mama" by Boyz II Men. It was a lot of fun and resulted in a lot of laughs and is something I'll never forget.
Q: What is one Draft Day memory you have of your sons?
A: Being a mother of two NFL players, my favorite Draft memory was when the tension, waiting, and wondering turned into excitement when they finally got that phone call and they knew that they were going to be drafted to an NFL team.
Q: What is the nicest thing your sons ever did for you?
A: I am very fortunate to have two wonderful sons who are always doing nice, thoughtful things for me, not just on Mother's Day, but on a regular basis. As far as something that stands out on Mother's Day was when they were 8 years old and they made me breakfast. It was boiled eggs, toast, and fresh strawberries, and they did it all by themselves. I watched over them, but then we sat down and enjoyed eating it together, as it was a great start to a wonderful Mother's Day. I'd just like to say "Happy Mother's Day" to all the Mom's out there. Have a wonderful day!
Wonder twin power...activate!
Devin and Jason, we're pretty sure that at some point in your youth, you caused your Mom a little grief. And we're pretty sure that she sent us this picture as payback. You wear those diapers well. Happy Mother's Day!
