Osi Umenyiora tweets 'Happy Mother's Day' at LeSean McCoy

Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora and Eagles running back LeSean McCoy aren't exactly BFFs. And not just because they play on opposite sides of the ball for teams that can't stand each other -- the two got into a little tiff last offseason when McCoy called Osi "soft" and Osi responded by calling McCoy "a girl."

In order to make sure that we all didn't forget this, Osi took to Twitter on Sunday and gave McCoy a shoutout.
If for some reason you're not picking up the joke, Osi is saying that McCoy is a woman. Which Osi apparently considers an insult. (This is ironic, considering Sunday is a day to honor the wonderful women in your life.)

Whatever, the point being is that Osi went out of his way on a Sunday during the offseason to take a pot shot at McCoy.

That goes to prove that Osi wasn't joking when he called McCoy's comments "unforgiveable" before the Giants and Eagles met up for the first time in 2011. It also proves Justin Tuck was right when he said the Giants would take Mccoy's comments "personally."

And in case it didn't, Osi made those facts quite clear when he answered fans questions about his Mother's Day tweet as a follow-up.
