What kind of world do we live in where people get arrested for being kind???

It doesn’t surprise me. Why would the Government want to feed the people…..It not like its there job to get people homes jobs food. They are too busy helping themselves…..shocking ( sarcasm )

And the only reason they were arrested is because Tampa officials didn’t want a congregation of homeless around for the weekend of the “big game” (the college national championship).

Your 2017 college football national champions, the Clemson Tigers!

Clemson was the better team — on both sides of the ball. And while they say defense wins championship, having arguably the best quarterback in college football on your side helps, too. Over and over, Deshaun Watson put Clemson on his back and willed his team to stay in this game. Watson was battered, bruised and exhausted by the game’s final whistle, but it was all worth it. A year after falling just short of a national championship, Watson got to be the one covered in confetti with a trophy to raise.

PRAYER REQUEST PLEASE (or well wishes - whatever you do!) 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

My sweet friend @uacboo (on right) was going with her friend to the NCAA College Football National Championship game in Tampa (to cheer for University of Alabama of course). Her friend has had cancer and just found out it has returned and metastasized to her hip. She starts radiation at the end of this week. So this was to be an exciting, fun getaway before that ordeal. @uacboo just texted me that they stopped to eat and before they left the restaurant, her friend’s hip and/or leg broke. Ambulance was called. They’ve just arrived at the ER. Any prayers, thoughts, etc would be appreciated. Thanks from @uacboo and her friend.

P.S. Real life puts some of the Tumblr bs in perspective (at least for me).

Last night Clemson upset Alabama 35-31 in the American College Football National Championship at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. Nearly 75,000 fans were in attendance at the facility which features a replica pirate ship for the city’s professional team, the Buccaneers.

hi kinda a newbie here but what is the difference between pac12 championships and regionals or something?

no its ok, i was confused too when i first started following college gym!

conference championships don’t have anything to do with qualify teams or individuals to nationals, but the scores gymnasts get there can be included in their regional qualifying score (RQS). it’s just a competition among the different teams in a given conference (pac 12, big 10, SEC, etc).

regionals are different. based on the scores gymnasts and teams have been getting all season, they qualify to one of 6 regional competitions. the “regional” isn’t based on geographic regions, which is what confused me at first, but they’re based on how the teams are ranked and seeded going into the process. 36 teams compete at regionals (6 each), and the top 2 teams from each regional move on to nationals (12 teams compete at nationals day one, the top 6 or Super Six compete on day two for the title)

i hope this helps! if i didn’t explain something very well (which happens a lot) please ask for clarification! <3 :)
