Joba Chamberlain will start tonight’s game against the Red Sox (weather permitting) and I’m guessing his Mom will be on his mind. You know why. She was arrested recently on suspicion of selling meth to an undercover agent. According to an article, this is what he said when he found out about the arrest:
“You’ve only got one mom, man, and you’ve got to be thankful for her,” he said. “I still love her.”
I don’t know if Joba really believes this or not, but it’s a great thing to say about his mother. Times can be hard on families these days, as I’m finding out personally, and the best thing a person can do when crises occur is just that: be thankful and still love them.
