Ok, calm down there applenut.
First of all, I thought your Mom was in administration and those type of jobs (at least around here) are year round.
Second of all, April, May, June, and September (not to mention October) are generally months that have school.
Not only that, but your Mom never mentioned working for the Yankees. Sounds pretty cool, though.
I also know all too well that teachers are underpaid. My Mom is an elementary school teacher. She has to bake pies, cakes, etc. for my aunt's restaurant on the side.
So there's no need to overreact, it was a simple question.
Edit: Lou Gehrig's speech was definitely a 'moment'. Unfortuantely, I wouldn't exactly call it a 'great moment'. After all, it was probably the worst time in his baseball career, not to mention his life.
He'd probably be the first to agree that he would have skipped the experience had he been given the chance. The others on the list such as Cal Ripken, Hank Aaron, etc. wouldn't have given the experience up at all. Just my thoughts.
