Happy Mother's Day!

We at Wolfpack Hoops would like to extend a Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's out there in Wolfpack Nation. All you Mothers out there deserve a big thank you for all you do. To the Mother's of our players, coaches and fans. To the wives that allow us to be such great fans, by allowing dinner to be eaten in front of the TV when the Pack plays, by understanding that "Season Tickets" is an acceptable addition to the budget, and by every once in a while pretending you'd rather spend your night away from the kids at the RBC instead of on the town.

So what Wolfpack Basketball related things does your Mother or Wife have (or had) to put up with? Let's have some fun with this...leave it in comments section and let's have a few laughs.

Have a Happy Mothers Day Everyone!

    Yea, my mom used to have to put up with me asking for money every time a home game was near. As for my wife, she has to put up with me on Wolfpack Hoops! I am always checking this site out when I get a chance

    ^haha awesome guys! I'll add another family has had season tickets for as long as I can remember and a few times back in the day my dad was called into work last minute, right before a game. It would be too late to try to find someone to come so my Mom would volunteer to go. I know she didn't know any of the players, and she had so much to get done for the next morning, but she'd act like she was having the best time.

    I always appreciated that, Mom! Thanks!

    While I love the sentiment, in my family, it's the mom who's the fan... and everybody else goes along with the program because they love me.

    Probably the thing my wife has to go through that's most excruciating is that I never walk away or turn off any game. Whether its late at nite with the tv on or listening to Gary Hahn and work the next day I'm with it from tip off to final buzzer.

    If we are in our seats at the game there is no "lets leave and beat the traffic" option. No if's an's or but's about it.

    Also wanted to give a shout out to a special dearly departed woman who never gave birth to any children but was definintly a mother figure to hundreds upon hundreds of people. Kay Yow, if my wife and I could give half as much knowledge and inspiration to our children as you did to your student athletes then I would be satisfied.

    On a parting note- please have your hearts and prayers with my family for this tuesday morn. as we prepare to welcome our next child into the world. He has to come by surgery C-section because of a condition his momma has but it will be all right. It's just always nerve wracking when the word surgery comes into play with a moment so monumental.

    p.s. I got the name to be James but my wife was not going for any Valvano in the middle...oh well

    Prayers with you Jose!! Im sure with the great doctors around everything will go along smoothly. As for my Wolfpack memory with my mom, as a child I loved go Reynolds Coll and scream my lungs out and leave with my ears ringing. My mom and dad had season tickets for years before i was born. When I became few years old she ALWAYS gave her ticket to me knowing how excited I would get. She ALWAYS got dinner ready for us, would tape the games for us and even look for us in the crowd.
    I attended states basketball camps EVERY YEAR and like clockwork she would always drop me off at 7 and return exactly at 4 at the end of the day. A true Wolfpack Mom, now she helps pays my tuition and even has gone to a few games with my father and I. Thanks wolfpack moms everywhere!!

    ^ Pack Leader,
    Those sound like some pretty cool memories! and don't worry about the anonymous posting, as long as you sign your name so we know it's you, you're all good. I'm not sure why you're having that problem.

    Visit to Maryland went fine. He did not commit and will decide on his destination after his graduation which is the 17th. Pack is definitely in the mix. Looks like if he qualifies he is ours to lose.

    If it means anything, on John Wall's facebook account he just became friends with Deshawn Painter. Probably means nothing because I'm sure he's friends with plenty of other basketball prospects, but maybe its something that should be noted. Go Wolfpack.

    Even though this is late, I would like to say a big thank you to my mom. She is actually a Carolina fan (went there for undergrad) and my dad is an NC State fan. After coming to Raleigh for college and meeting my future husband at State I have been a hard core state fan. My Mom has always supported my obsession with the Wolfpack and has never tried to convince me otherwise! Thanks Mom!
