Teddy Bridgewater buys his mom
 
A pink Cadillac Escalade for her birthday, she is also a survivor of breast cancer.

Pretty awesome if you ask me.

TB is a standup guy. However his choice in that car is terrible. Nothing says that's TB's mom in that car like that.

Just saying, if I was a professional athlete I wouldn't want to put a target on my mom like that. Should have just went with a customized pink emblem instead.

If you read the article linked there, you'll see that Bridgewater tells a story:

Quote:

“When I was 9-years-old, my mom and I, we were riding home from football practice. … I just saw and Escalade riding by and I told her, ‘Mom, when I make it to the NFL, I’m going to buy you a pink Escalade truck,’ ” Bridgewater said in a video produced by Cadillac, which helped him acquire his dream gift for his mom, Rose Murphy, just a little bit early.

And while pink, at first, might seem a little bit of garish shade, Bridgewater stuck with his 9-year-old self’s wish as a way to support his mom’s breast cancer diagnosis.
When you take that into account, this is just cool all the way around.

I used to throw a pass and go catch it when I was a kid

I tried attaching a string to the football when I was kid. What I should have also done was tie the string to my wrist.
