Ronaldo and the Syrian Refugee Boy

Remember that time when a Hungarian journalist intentionally tripped a Syrian refugee carrying his son?

Well, the story of Osama Alabed Almohse (the father in the picture) and his youngest son, Ziad, immediately became international news and word spread that Almohse was a soccer coach in Syria. He was then offered a teaching job at CENAFE which is a Spanish school that trains coaches. And it didn't stop there.

Last Thursday, Real Madrid president, Florentine Perez, invited Almohse, and his two sons, Mohammad and Ziad, to Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, the home and heart of Real Madrid.

But something even greater happened over the weekend during a match between Real Madrid and Granada.

Ziad got to walk onto the field of Santiago Bernabeu with his hero and the sport's most recognizable star, Cristiano Ronaldo.

Also, Ronaldo and his teammates wore T-shirts that showed their support for all the refugees that have fled Syria.

And Real Madrid said the club plans on donating 1 million euros toward the humanitarian cause and help out the Syrian refugees.

The club plans on helping Almohse attain refugee status in Spain, but he'll have to first learn how to speak Spanish.

Hopefully they can start a new life in Spain and never have to go through the terrible experience they had a few weeks ago.

This is the greatest outcome to one of the worst stories I ever heard. When I found out a reported tripped a father and son I legit wanted to cry!!! But now Spain is seriously stepping up !! @VinMcCarthy I get what you're saying, sometimes the amazing stories of the few totally overshadow the big picture BUT the club also plans on donating 1 million euros!! It won't fix the problem but it was certainly help!!
this is amazing!! I'm so happy that this situation turned around for that family. just a small part of it bothers me.because with the attention they will all get might overshadow the depth of the problems the rest of the refugees are facing. It's amazing that this family has seen so great a windfall, but other families, so many of them, are in distinctly different positions.
@mchlyang Yeah, I'm glad it all ended well. I just dislike unkind people and I simply can NOT come up with a reason why she did that. Not cool. :( I wonder... did she ever answer for that? At least we know who got the last laugh!
@nicolejb Yes, I really do hope he can overcome the horrible experience he went through and become a famous football player like his hero, Ronaldo! Ronaldo is the man!
AMAZING! what a sad story, with a happy and hopeful ending. that kid looks so cool. haha

Why Men Can't Buy the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team Jerseys
It is official. It is irrefutable. The U.S. women's national soccer team is the best in the world. So it would be natural for Americans, I mean all Americans, to support their women's national team by wearing their jerseys right? And that's especially true in the world of soccer, because soccer is all about pageantry. What you wear is critical to show true support for your team. And Nike, which is the official sponsor of both the Men's and Women's national soccer team, took in pre-orders just prior to the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup. But shortly after the pre-orders were sold out, Nike had to cancel all the orders. Why? The answer lies behind the two stars you see above the crest. These stars represent the number of World Cups that the U.S. women's national team has won (1991, 1995). Now after winning the 2015 World Cup, another star was added to their jerseys. But of course, the men's national soccer team does not have any stars above the crest, because well... they haven't won a World Cup yet. So, Nike decided to cancel the orders for the men's version of the women's national soccer team jerseys because it could give the false impression that the men's team have won those World Cups. What is this nonsense? What should the men and boys, who made up 61% of the 13.5 million viewers that tuned in for the 2011 World Cup finals do? It is such a shame that we still face gender inequality issues and it extends beyond the field. It even applies to fans and their freedom and passion to support their own team. A male fan should be able to wear an Alex Morgan uniform or Abby Wambach's uniform. And who cares if the women's national team won three World Cups and the men's national team hasn't won any? In the end, playing like a girl means you're a badass. What do my sports fans think about this issue?

#LEAVEGDALONE
(Gd posted this about 20 minutes ago) Recently a hacker hacked onto Gd's private instagram and made it public. - Allkpop being like themselves decided that they would post the photos telling people about the hacking and supposed 'Couple photos' on there.... (I scribbled out the picture because it was on his private instagram,so he obviously only wanted his friends to see it) ~ This is the article Allkpop wrote, multiple fans are replying to this telling them to take it down. Multiple anti-fans are also claiming how ugly he is, etc. >:| Spread the hasgtag so GD knows that fans love him and he shouldn't let allkpop or hackers get to him. #LEAVEGDALONE TAGGING MY YEOLIES!! <3: @Chace @MadAndrea@JustinaNguyen @jazgaara33 @MrsBangYongguk @Badtz @ScarletMermaid @PrettieeEmm @punkpandabear @LaurenStrayhorn @SusiBosshammer @JamiMilsap @VeronicaArtino @ElenaP16 @KellyOConnor @Kyokeo @Sankeerthana @EmilyCayetano @shellyfuentes70 @MBLAQSA @P1B2Bear @Kpopfangirl15 @Bitterlimelight @jojojordy2324 @Rawr21 @Juliag13 @KaiJae @ArmyofKookie @AaliyahNewbell @resavalencia @SugaOnTop @Sammie99522 @minimanim3 @Defy24601 @StefaniTre @SugaMint @DesireeChucklez @sarahdarwish @VatcheeAfandi99 @EliseB @VKookie47 @TiffanyBibian @taetaebaozi @RebeccaLondon @Katherina2078 @AimeeH @KpopQueen1 @KatelynSummerso @Kylie88 @CrystalGuerra @QueenLele @Minnieluvs @kimnam94 @CamrynCherry @Izzy987 @faith92 @TaehyungV @BetseyBleau @nenegrint14 @Lesliesoo @ninjamidori @Ihiranthom13 @MelissaGarza @DesireeChucklez @Maddie27 @PrettieEmm @MelinaHernandez @abby177 @PandaSoapy @DayzC @DawanaMason @Daniimals @jeonjungkook8 @AaliyahNewbell @IsoldaPazo @xoxorittie @LysetteMartinez @KittyKpop @motionlessmetal @herreravenessa9 @rosajlm2 @ChoHee1 @MaddieRudicil @michievip @kanatm @AlysaNguyen @Katmejia @Choijiah @GabyWilliams @jessicaacosta9 @Tamsinskye @TiffanyBibian @KpopQueenaBee @TracyLynnn @AlisonNichole @KpopandKdrama @emily1478 @Vay754 @alishap @CrystalGuerra @SarahVanDorn @xojuliettexox @michix5 @amandamuska @StephaniePoore @KatelynSummerso @aliciazitting88 @Joshuahoseok @BtsIsLife @Chrissy2009 @mycreativename @jungkookie18 @ArielaPicazo @IDK2018 @MalinaAhmed @BaroMaiden @imiebegay14 @Taisa @kcastaneda170 @ChrystalA @DestinaByrd @BriannaN @taeyumme @MarrickeJ33 @ShailaZaman @RainaC3 @Gaarita100 @CamrynCherry @BonnieDomo @JessicaSchnipke @Minsuggie @karinamiranda81 @MomoChamie @Ilikepancakes @YessicaCardenas @Bmelc @callmeguena @JessicaVang @LydiaYan @toitlepark @lunastormnoona @Jupiterchan @BreeMassey @Vixxstarlight1 @katcollins02 @Zhac16 @TaehyungV @93yogurt @Kat711 @DejaunaSiders @EmilyGardner @ezzygomez24 @MaraWhite @Defy24601 @MahelySandoval @TrishaLee727 @InnocentiaKishi @SophieNguyen @MorleeCorielus @ruthmilian89 @XergaB20 @TLeahEdwards @EstelaLopez @KDluvR1999 @KatieRussell @EliseB @AliciaJaneth @rochellelove12 @JessicaFigueroa @TesneemElAlami @kpopdeluxegirl @JuviaJongdae @Jeshaki @yehetmyohorat99 @nathalyalamo298 @jessicacheung97 @reseavalencia @Norma1004 @luyawn @CheyanneLindsey @sherrysahar @DanaAmoi @StarishaRichard @jazgaara33 @ButterflyBlu @karinajune1017 @lizbethV @JasmineWilliams @LilianaGD @deefran @agirlwholovesV @lashonda0917 @Kyokeo @KierstinAndrews @terenailyn @BAbrajan1 @Rebecca22 @GerciaFlores @KrystaDericek @megancurrent9 @roseeoh @musicundefined9 @MaryNtanga @sarahdarwish @MadAndrea @Konnor @externallyeli @LizaNightshade @SugaKookies @lashonda0917 @ArmyVIPKayla @elainarenea @2Jaebam @amobts @kpopandkimchi

I'm Ashamed of My Hometown
San Diego, get your shit together. Each year at the Padres stadium, Petco Park, the LGBT society in SD holds an event called "Out at the Park" that is meant to bring the community together for an evening of baseball. This year, Petco Park really, really screwed up. The San Diego Men's Gay Chorus was meant to sing the national anthem before the game to represent the LGBT community for this event. Their voices were never heard. The stadium let them take the field, and then as they were about to sing, a recorded female voice instead sang the anthem (which, if you've been to a Padres game, isn't something that happens - we always have live singing) The men had to walk off the field hearing people shouting profane, homophobic things at them. The Padres said it was a mistake, a technical error, a third party contractor, and that they were sorry. But that doesn't explain the other examples of mistreatment. Days prior to the game, the Padres organization told the performers that the chorus would have to pay for their tickets in order to sing. This is not something that happens, ever. If you perform the national anthem, you get to enter the park for free, DUH. Why did the Padres suddenly want this now? That would have cost the small organization thousands of dollars, and after dispute they were finally allowed in as performers. You can listen to their great voices here when they performed in 2015. It's a pity their voices weren't heard this year. Get it together Padres, you're a disappointment in baseball but don't be a disappointment to your entire community.
