Colin Kaepernick’s Birth Mom Needs To Go Hide Under A Rock Until After The Super Bowl


Look, Colin Kaepernick’s birth mom: you seem like a nice enough lady.

When I first heard that you were giving interviews in the lead-up to the biggest professional moment of your biological son’s life, I rolled my eyes. Here we go, I thought. Just another birth mom coming out of the woodwork to bask in her biological son’s dual threat quarterbacking glory. Right before the Super Bowl. Ugh, boy.

But then I watched this interview that you gave to Fox31 in Denver, and you came off as genuine. You really are happy for Colin Kaepernick, you really did agonize over having to give him up for adoption, and you really do want him to know that you’re thinking of him. Plus, it’s not like you’re emerging completely out of the blue at the most opportune time imaginable, because you sent him a Myspace message when he enrolled at Nevada. You’ve been profiled by Yahoo before, so it’s not like this is the first time anyone’s ever heard of you, and there’s no real element of surprise here.

But yo. Lady.

You’ve got to stop giving interviews until after the Super Bowl.

Seriously. Your birth son is locked inside a room somewhere in Santa Clara with his crazy head coach, breaking down film of Ed Reed and Bernard Pollard. He doesn’t need your static right now, he needs to be focused on the game tape. Yeah, it’s nice you’re thinking about him, but he needs to be thinking about Ray Lewis and Dannell Ellerbe. Not about you, and your red scarf.

Do you know what’s going to happen when he sits down for Media Day in New Orleans, and reporters start asking him questions? They’re going to ask questions about you. They should be asking questions about Terrell Suggs and Paul Kruger. But they’re going to ask questions about you. And that’s not fair to him. It’s distracting. You’re distracting.

I have no doubt that your intentions are good. But still: you need to go hide somewhere. Seriously. Go hide somewhere until February 4th, the day after the Super Bowl, and then come out and give interviews if you want to. I’m not Colin Kaepernick, I don’t know what your relationship is like with him, and I don’t know how he feels about you, but I’m 99.9% sure that the net effect of your decision to talk to the media right before Super Bowl Week will be negative.

Go away for a little while.

    Dude. nice time to get warm and fuzzie with your son that you haven’t seen since he was 6 weeks old, I’m pretty sure, he stop wondering about that along time ago, yes it must of been a Difficult Decision for you, and all around it worked out for everybody. and as for wanting anything from him. you gave that right up a long time ago, you just have to stand in line with everybody else. and just maybe, maybe he will throw you a bone.

    Ok, time has passed, Colin is growing up…things happen and as we get older we realize we can be better…we realize that you cannot escape DNA. You will resemble your mom and dad, sisters, brothers and cousins. There’s room in your life for them all, both biological and non-biological. It’s always fun to hang out with relatives that look like you…Hey, where’s dad?
