While the rest of the United States spent Sunday spoiling mothers from coast to coast, New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora took time out to wish a special someone a Happy Mother’s Day.

Happy Mothers Day Lesean Mccoy! Enjoy your special day!!

Why, you ask, would Umenyiora tweet those words to the starting back on the rival Philadelphia Eagles? Is he just that kind-hearted? Did he mean to wish McCoy’s mother a Happy Mother’s Day?

You’ll recall this is the same guy who called McCoy a “Chihuahua” and “Lady Gaga” after McCoy said Umenyiora was “overrated n soft” on Twitter last June. Umenyiora has referred to McCoy as “she” ever since.

It’s only May and things are already getting feisty between the Giants and Eagles. Circle that Sept. 30 matchup at Lincoln Financial Field!
