Osi Umenyiora sent Mother’s Day greetings to LeSean McCoy

What's beef? Beef is when you tweet a Mother's Day message to a division rival, reigniting a months-old playground tiff. I'm pretty sure that's what happened with 2Pac and Biggie, right?

New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora, a newcomer to the social media service, sent a special note to Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy early Sunday morning. It comes a few months after McCoy called Umenyiora "soft" and Umenyiora responded by oh-so-cleverly calling McCoy "she" and "Lady Gaga."

OK, the Lady Gaga crack was lame, but this is some solid trash talk that elevates the discourse. Because McCoy is a man and, by the laws of nature, he can't be a mother! It's a physical impossibility!

I want to know how long Osi's been sitting on this joke. Did he wake up this morning and think of it? Or was it something he came up with during last summer's trash-talk battle and had to save for 10 months?
