Congratulations, Derrick Rose, on winning the NBA's Most Valuable Player.

In leading the Bulls to the best record in the league, you ignited this city. You made us remember how wonderful it is to watch basketball in May, and you did it all with a humble, dignified manner.

In your speech, you thanked everyone for supporting you: your coaches, your teammates, your fans, and especially your mother.

Winning the MVP the week of Mother's Day is pretty much the best gift you could give your mother. But did you have to do the sweet, gracious speech thanking her? Did you have to make us all cry?

Because now, none of us stand a chance. No matter what we get our Moms to honor this day, it won't measure up to what you gave your wonderful mother. Flowers? Chocolate? Pshh. Perhaps a chocolate replica of the MVP statue. A donation to her favorite charity? You had a car donated to "Meals on Wheels."

Your Mother's Day gift to the deserving Brenda Rose makes us all feel like no matter what, we can't keep up.

Ahh, so that's what the rest of the league feels like.
