He said something like:

He was ashamed of his mother working her hospital job and saying one of his goals was to make sure his mother never had to work another day. huh??? Why would he be ashamed of his mother for working hard at a job trying her best to support him??

What was he trying to say here?

Maybe he was ashamed his mom had to work and couldn't stay home like many moms do. :shrug:

I was back in Missouri for a funeral over the weekend. Didn't see any of this. Considering the two principal shitbags who were inducted, I'm good with that.

It was kind of strange. I understood what he was trying to say, but he didn't say it in the right way.

However, he did do a nice job thanking everyone...from every team he was on.

exactly....I like Deion, im pretty sure he was trying to say something else, but he used a poor choice of words. It came off like he was putting down working people, when he could have said something like take pride in your work no matter the job.

Peter King found it odd also: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2011/writers/peter_king/08/08/tour/1.html

This is from King's Monday Morning QB column this week, which also has a preview of the 2012 HOF class... which could feature two former Chiefs (Roaf and Shields).

Well they just talked about this on the radio and they played that snippet of his speech.

He said that he played on some sort of team with a lot of kids from affluent families. His mom was apparently some sort of cleanup person at the hospital. One of the other kids on his team saw Deion's mom pushing the janitor cart at the hospital and came back and made fun of Deion.

Now Deion appreciates how hard his mom had to work to provide for him when he was a kid and he doesn't want her to have to work anymore.

This makes sense.
