It’s always hard to hear about when athletes - or hell, anybody, for that matter - have strained relationships with their parents. It’s not the natural state of things and there’s no substitute for a loving parent when it comes to keeping yourself normal.
But that sort of goes out the window when it comes to people like Mina Brees, Drew Brees‘ mom.

Specifically, she’s one with no qualms about thinly-veiled extortion attempts against local businesses in Houston.
