Same logic a guy I worked with who was a Magic the Gathering player used when he named his son Shadow Wolf and his Daughter Autumn Willow.

The latter sounds as if the parents are stoned hippies. The former, well...

Despite not playing every season, Miami and Florida maintain a fiery rivalry whenever the two teams faceoff. However, this story from Saturday’s 24-20 win by the Gators is a troubling one.

 

According to a report from CollegeMarching.com, the Florida marching band was “in their parade order marching to their buses after the game outside of the stadium when a group of University of Miami fans tried to push their way into the band block. The Director of the Gator Band, Dr. Jay Watkins, saw the group and ran towards them to help stop the altercation.”

 

The report went on to say that Dr. Watkins was placed in a chokehold by the fans before slamming the concrete and hitting his head. Another member of the band was allegedly punched in the face and had a bloody nose.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. —

Raging Waters was shut down early Sunday afternoon after a large fight that started over a beach towel nearly killed a man, officials said.

The 40-person brawl began around 3:30 p.m. by the Lazy River picnic area after a disagreement between two women over who took whose beach towel, said Everest Robillard, the Cal Expo police chief.

 

Maybe "Raging Waters" isn't the best name choice for a water park.

I'm starting to see these on facebook.  Very reminiscent of the Chinese 1984-esque social credit rating system.  I'm sure it will love all my non-woke activities.

A so-called "Straight Pride Parade" in Boston on Saturday drew as many counterprotesters marches in addition to a heavy police presence.

It is not okay to be white, and it is not okay to be straight, and it is doubly not okay to be straight and white.

Their HQ is in Atlanta, Georgia FFS. One would have thought they'd know what states bordered them.

Can be a caser of bad editing, that is the title card at the bottom is for the next screen or was for the last screen shown. But still, this does not look too professional.

It's not the title, it's that the map is wrong, somehow they have managed to erase the state of Alabama.  Georgia does not border Mississippi and Mississippi does not border Florida.  Sort of the equivalent of a map of Germany showing Hesse and Saxony sharing a border.

Atlanta isn't necessarily part of Georgia, and Buckhead isn't necessarily considered Hotlanta. :lol:
