This past Sunday, New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora sent Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy a tweet to wish him a Happy Mothers Day in order to insult him.
Sarah Spain of ESPN.com took offense to Umenyiora’s tweet because she saw it as a way to degrade women since he’s implying that McCoy is a wimp by referring him to a woman. After reading her column I completely understand where Spain is coming from and can’t disagree. No one has ever put it in that kind of perspective.
At the end of the day, Umenyiora did the right thing and decided to apologize via Twitter. This is definitely a classy move by one of the NFL’s best pass rushers.
