When an NFL team makes a first-round draft pick, said player can expect to find himself awash in the limelight for the foreseeable future.
But after the New York Giants made Eli Apple, a cornerback from Ohio State, their first overall choice, who knew that Apple's mom would be getting some media attention herself?
Turns out Annie Apple is quite prolific on Twitter — with more than 40,000 tweets — and many of them downright hilarious.
She showed her stuff on draft night, warning Eli to not pick up the phone because the call came from a New Jersey area code — their home state — and they weren't expecting a ring that soon:
Ha! Thought it was a telemarketer https://t.co/dAiYl8wuUj— Annie Apple (@SurvivinAmerica) April 29, 2016
So, combine a kid getting a first-round nod from an NFL team and that franchise hailing from the media empire of America, and you get a big-time frenzy hitting young Apple.
But that's not all his mother noticed.
Annie tweeted another funny, if not touching, message to another group factoring into the instant attention her son was getting:

"Praying for all the thirsty girls sliding in new NFL rookies DMs with heavy booty & cleavage action pics," she wrote. "Only Jesus can quench your thirst."
To which Eli Apple noted:

And mom's notable observations haven't waned a bit. Check out a few more gems:

Me: Mom, Eli is a NY Giant! How awesome is that?!! My Mom: But New York is so expensive...— Annie Apple (@SurvivinAmerica) April 30, 2016
Btw, Eli's dad is a retired five star chef. We eat well. So stop playing with our name. Next time you say our name, put some respeck on it— Annie Apple (@SurvivinAmerica) April 27, 2016
Thanks for the lesson on spelling respect guys... But Google respeck and you'll realize the spelling is quite contextually appropriate.— Annie Apple (@SurvivinAmerica) April 27, 2016
