Mom gets some love from Ball Don't Lie!
BK and I have long been big fans of Yahoo!'s Ball Don't Lie blog. We've linked to them oodles of times. We've had BDL voices Kelly Dwyer and Tas Melas on our 710 ESPN Podkast. We dig how the site gets its name from a cool Rasheed Wallace quote. Safe to say, we've been in their corner.
But now we realllllly dig them, because they made Mom's day after linking a post I wrote about her wondering how the Nuggets Chris Andersen got "The Birdman" nickname. She thought this was very cool, although she couldn't understand why anybody would care about her Birdman curiosity. Then again, she also once told her sons that she didn't understand why anybody would read their blog.
I'm not kidding, by the way. She actually said that. It wasn't meant as an insult and she expressed confidence that we do a good job. But, as she put it, "I just don't understand why anybody would care what you think."
I often ask the same question myself.
