Mina Kimes’ Mom Has Wildly Wholesome Twitter Account That’s Nothing But Support

ESPN has various personalities, ranging from the performative to the legitimately informative to everything in between. It’s certainly no secret that, despite the network being based on “sports news”, ESPN is in the entertainment business, which is why the increasingly bombastic yet endlessly hardworking Stephen A. Smith is their highest-paid talent, signing a five-year, $60 million contract extension in late 2019.

On the other end of the spectrum are the likes of Mina Kimes, who — instead of using their voice to make their point — uses their pure intelligence to opine and inform the audience. I’ve tweeted about it before and I’ll say it again, I think Kimes’ is the network’s best NFL analyst (I also occasionally enjoy Dan Orlovsky) because instead of feeling like I’m having knowledge yelled at me in a performance art piece, I feel like I’m actually learning something as if I were in a classroom, as she’s able to bring well-researched, relatively complex football analysis and deliver it an understandable, but perhaps more importantly, consumable manner. As a result, Kimes is one of the only ESPN analysts I follow on Twitter.

Despite all that (word count oriented — hey Google, how are ya?) pontificating, this article actually isn’t about Mina Kimes, but her mother Sun Min Kimes, who I recently discovered has one of the most wholesome feeds on the entire cursed bird app known as Twitter.

A self-described “Korean mom into English football, American football, coffee, movies, dogs, etc.,”, her tweets consist of, well, *exactly* that. Kimes’ feed is an endless stream of tweets about Tottenham Hotspur, the USMNT, Seattle Seahawks, her dog Winston, and, of course, supportive and proud tweets about her ESPN star daughter. It’s the type of wholesome that only a mother could bring to the otherwise largely toxic social media platform. Moms, man — just the absolute best. If anyone can clean up Twitter, it’s them.
