Giants’ Dave Tollefson hurt, no sympathy from his mom

Giants defensive end Dave Tollefson went to the locker room with a knee injury during Sunday’s game against the Eagles, and his mom, who was at the game, followed him to the locker room.

But mommy wasn’t there to kiss the boo-boo and make her baby boy feel better.

“She was like ‘What are you doing?’ ” Tollefson told the New York Daily News. “I said, ‘Mom, I’m hurt.’ She said, ‘I don’t give an F. Get it taped up and get the hell in there! I don’t want to hear this.'”

Tollefson’s mom lives 3,000 miles away and doesn’t get to see her son play very often, and she didn’t want to miss the opportunity on Sunday.

“Tape it up!” Tollefson says his mom told him. “I didn’t fly here from California to watch you ride the pines!”

Tollefson’s sprained MCL will force him to miss at least one game, but he’s going to do his best to make his mom proud and return for the regular season finale on January 2.

“I love mom,” Tollefson said. “She’s crazy.”

    Mother of the Year!

    Anyone have a picture of this tough broad? Exactly what a lot of these players need. Forget the trip to Namby Pamby Land!

    Maybe if Mrs. Tollefson had played this weekend the Giants wouldn’t have folded against the Eagles. She probably could’ve punted out of bounds too.

    Can we fire Godell and hire Tollefson’s Mom as the New Commish?

    Everything about that story smells like BS to me.

    If she actually said that, she was most likely saying it tongue-in-cheek to try and cheer him up.

    More likely than that, Tollefson was yanking the reporters chains.

    I’ve known his mom for nearly 30 years now, and I can truthfully say, she probably did say exactly what Dave stated. One tough momma.

    All joking aside this women should be teaching a class on how to raise your kids.

    Stop crying and go do your job

    Mom of the year
