What happened next had the world crying too. Seconds after his touchdown, several of his teammates gathered around him and hugged him as a sign of silent support.

It’s not until later that day that the world found out how heavy the problem he was carrying. In a heartbreaking Instagram post, Goodwin shared how his wife Morgan had a miscarriage because of pregnancy complications, and it happened hours before the game’s kickoff. Just imagine the weight Goodwin carried.

“I just wanna thank those who’ve genuinely prayed for @morganakamomo & myself throughout this pregnancy. Unfortunately, we lost our baby boy due to some complications and had to prematurely deliver him early this morning around 4 am. Although we are hurt, I am grateful for the experience and grateful that God blessed me with a wife as courageous and resilient as Morgan. The pain (physically, mentally, & emotionally) that she has endured is unbelievable. Please Pray for the Goodwin family.”

Morgan also shared a post on Instagram about their loss.

“This whole week has taken an emotional toll on my husband and I, Struggling to keep our healthy baby safe in my womb. However, God had other plans for us. Today, I had to deliver my precious baby boy early this morning due to preterm labor. Despite our loss, my hubby kept grinding, scored his son a touchdown & got our first “W” of the season. He had a wonderful game today. I appreciate everyone who kept us in their prayers and constantly checked in on us. This was truly and an amazing experience and it was also a tragic experience. But that’s okay because we won’t stop fighting and we won’t give up on what God has in store for us. It’s just important for us to remember that things happen for a reason, even though we may question ourselves “why us.” Our faith is strong. I just ask that you let us mourn in peace and ask that you not try and call/blow our phone up. 👼🏾 #RIPBabyGoodwin #PretermLabor#PregnancyLoss #StayingStrong

God bless the Goodwin family, and our prayers are with you. Watch Goodwin’s winning touchdown below.

Friends ‘Ride’ Invisible Car to Order Food at Jollibee Drive Thru

A number of fast food outlets have a drive thru for the convenience of those who just want to order a quick takeout meal. The premise of ordering via the drive thru is that you have a vehicle.

What happens if you don’t have a vehicle but the lines at the counter inside the store are too long and the drive thru window has fewer customers?

Well, a group of friends had this rather genius idea of ‘riding’ an invisible car so they can order food at the Jollibee drive thru because the queues inside the store were long.

Laughing at their own crazy antics, the group positioned themselves in a manner that people would normally take if they were riding a car. They were standing, of course, but the designated ‘driver’ made sure to drive them carefully towards the important stops at the drive through – and he didn’t forget to ‘release the hand brake’ before moving forward to the counter.

It was really so hilarious to see these guys ‘riding’ their invisible car that the crew at the counter couldn’t help but laugh. They’re so crazy, right? LOL. But the crew played along, accepting the guys’ orders, still laughing at their silliness.

After their order was taken, the group continued towards the claim area without breaking their position. The crew at this counter also laughed at the guys, even gamely giving the ‘driver’ a fist bump.

They continued towards the exit in the same position, Giving each other high fives, knowing they got their way and were able to order much faster than the customers inside the store. Clever trick, isn’t it?

But the guys did not just trick the Jollibee crew, they had also become famous on Facebook. Less than 24 hours after the video was posted, the video has garnered close to 1 million views!

Lovers Since Elementary, Couple Graduated Together from Three Different Schools

A lot of people frown on very young lovers, especially when they are still in their early high school and especially in grade school years! After all, the incidence of teenage pregnancy has risen up significant over the past decades.

But one couple from Davao has proven that love isn’t always destructive to very young people because it can also be used as inspiration to strive harder to reach their dreams together!

Meet Vande Alagao and Janica Eleria from Davao City in southern Philippines. They were lovers since their elementary days. What’s amazing about their relationship is that not only were they able to manage staying together all these years but that they had graduated together from three different schools.

A bit confusing, eh? Well, here’s what really happened.

On When in Manila, Janica revealed that they met back in Grade 2 when she transferred to Vande’s school. She gushed at how Vande could still vividly remember to this day what she was wearing that day and what cellphone she was using!

They started exchanging text messages in Grade 5 and became a couple a year later.

In high school, however, Vande went to a different school. They only saw each other about once or twice a year at the time, until Janica’s mom decided to move her to Vande’s school in their third year of high school.

They graduated together from that school, a different one from their elementary school but they were together.

They recently graduated from senior high school. Thankfully, their respective families were supportive of their relationship, especially because they continue to focus more on their studies.

In college, the two are planning to take up different courses but just like their previous years, they will be studying in the same school. They will be celebrating their 7th year this October. Hopefully, 4 years from now, they will still be a couple and graduating from their fourth school together!

Dad Earns Praise for Being Proud of Son, Despite Barely Passing Grades

Published

Every parent wants the best for their children – and that often means encouraging (even forcing!) the kids to do better, especially in school. More often than not, parents get angry if their children have failing grades or if the grades are not within expectations.

Sadly, this puts too much pressure on the children to excel even if they couldn’t really do it, no matter how hard they study. In reality, whether we like to admit it or not, not everyone was born academically intelligent.

But one dad recently went viral after posting his son’s barely passing grades. He’s definitely the complete opposite of those proud parents who post their children’s nearly perfect grades but he’s still as proud as them!

In a post that has gone viral on Facebook, netizen E.i. Baldo shared a photo of his son’s grades as well as a photo of them posing outside a house with a swimming pool.

This cool dad congratulated his son for passing Grade 1. He said that the boy made his happy, especially when the kid joked that his dad should open the card slowly because the grades could cut his finger, an allusion to the joke that line-of-7 grades are ‘palakols’ (axes). LOL.

Instead of getting angry, however, this dad felt proud that the boy passed the level and would be in Grade 2 next year. He recalled that back when he was a student, he also had similar grades; thus, the boy’s report card is really just like a ‘throwback’ to his own.

According to Baldo, knowing his own capabilities as a student, he didn’t really dream of going to the stage to put medals and ribbons to his kids.

He just encouraged his son to try harder next year, maybe getting the grades up to 79% but it was clear that there was no pressure from him because the passing grade is 75%; so, he argued that any excess is really just an ‘allowance’.

For his pride in his son and for not pressuring the kid in achieving something the boy couldn’t do, this dad earned netizens’ praise. Many are wishing that all parents would be like him, understanding and supportive of their kids no matter what happens!
