Annie Apple, the mother of New York Giants rookie cornerback Eli Apple, is turning into a star in her own right.
First, she told her son not to sport a Rolex at the NFL Draft, saying he is an “unemployed college dropout.”
On Friday, Eli signed a four-year rookie contract with the Giants.
Now, Annie is receiving gifts of desserts from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
Goodell sent brownies to Apple’s mother to make up for the lack of desserts at the Draft’s welcome reception. Annie had said the NFL gave a nice reception for the families, but the league forgot desserts.
“This is what happens when skinny women rule the world: they forget the chocolate. Clearly the commissioner owes me a brownie,” Apple said in a story she wrote about her son’s draft experience for Sports Illustrated.
