Maybe this is what America needed.
On Sunday, Houston hosted a Super Bowl like none other for a nation bitterly divided by politics but united by its passion for football. When it was over, only the Atlanta Falcons faithful, who packed much of NRG Stadium, left feeling as though they’d been punched in the gut after the New England Patriots rallied to win, 34-28, in the greatest comeback in the game’s history.
Excerpt : Professional Football Players Mothers Association
On Sunday, December 14, 1997, twelve mothers of professional football players met to discuss the possibility of forming a national association to support each other and our player sons. It was determined that there was no mechanism to provide information to mothers whose sons were new to professional football, and that such an association would be beneficial. Preliminary attempts were made to identify mothers who would work on the organizing committee. After making initial contacts, a meeting was held in New York on March 15, 1997 and subsequently in Colorado with fifteen mothers participating. The mothers reached a consensus and thereby the Professional Football Players Mothers Association (PFPMA) was born.
We are a non-profit corporation comprised of mothers, or those who serve that role in a player’s life, of active and retired professional football players. We are here to create a support system and information network for mothers of professional football players by forming a membership association to address specific needs and concerns, and enhance the public perception of our sons. Our organization is nationwide, and our goal is to have mothers whose sons represent each football team. https://pfpma.org/about-us/
