Let's not talk about how the Indians are the worst team in the AL and second worst team in baseball. Instead, let's talk about moms!

For me, I rarely get to spend Mother's Day with my mom. Being 7 hours apart has it's disadvantages and not getting to spend this day with her is one of them. But she's a rock and she's the toughest person I know. Not the toughest lady, the toughest person. Despite being so far apart, she's never out of my life for a single day. Not because she forces her way in, nor does she make me feel guilty when I can't visit as often as I'd like or I haven't called in a few days. She's still a huge part of my life because I want her to be, because I appreciate her advice and her ability to wrap my problems up in that mystical mother cocoon and take them away from me, if even for just a few moments.

She carries the family on her shoulders, and they're shoulders the size of Paul Bunyan. Figuratively, folks. I'm not calling my mother large! Especially not on Mother's Day, you animals! No matter what troubles she may have of her won, she always has time for mine, no matter how small they may be. For these, and for a thousand other reasons that will go untold here on the internet, I love my mother. And she's a whole lot easier to love than this Indians team.

Let's Go Moms!
