Adam Jones Brushes Off Jokes About His Mom in Boston (Video)
Getting heckled is part of being a professional athlete, and sometimes it gets personal. I’m sure that can be hard to take, especially from ruthless drunk fans at Fenway. However, Adam Jones handled some pretty nasty comments about his mom with grace after the game. His 1 HR, 5 RBI performance during Monday’s Patriots Day game vs. the Red Sox may have helped his demeanor a bit.
Here’s the clip:
Ok. That’s pretty great. Nice work, Adam Jones. Don’t let the jeers get you down, especially after a performance like that. I hope his mom WAS in town, and she was at Fenway. Then, maybe after the game, they DID get together and had a terrific dinner at some place like Legal Sea Foods.
In the meantime, I’m sure those taunts bother him as much as a cloudy day. That doesn’t mean they’ll stop, but it sure seems like it will be a while before they get on the nerves of Adam Jones.
