Athletes unafraid to show how much they love their moms
SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA - APRIL 6: Hines Ward of the Pittsburgh Steelers and his mother Kim Young-Hee do some sightseeing at the traditional ChangDuk palace April 6, 2006 in Seoul, South Korea. South Korea gave the Korean-American football star, who left the country as a toddler, a hero's welcome. Ward, who was born to a Korean mother and an African-American father, became an overnight sensation in South Korea when the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver won the MVP award in the team's Super Bowl victory over the Seattle Seahawks last February. Ward, 31, was accompanied by his mother Kim Young-Hee, who took him to the U.S. when he was two-years-old to escape the discrimination often suffered by mixed-race children in South Korea.
