Raheem Sterling thanks Chelsea colleague Mason Mount for putting in the best training performance he’s ever seen.

Speaking on the Lions’ Den, Sterling recalled Mount’s clearly incredible display he delivered during a session with England.

The two Stamford Bridge stars have known each other for some time now and have seen many days spent in training.

But when Mount first joined the England senior team in 2018, he and Sterling were probably not familiar friends at the time.

Sterling was already an established Premier League player with Manchester City, not to mention a regular for the Three Lions.

Meanwhile, Mount was halfway through his loan spell with Derby County under Frank Lampard.

Mount makes the most of England call-up

The Chelsea academy graduate might have been impressed by those at Saint George’s Park, but his display on his initial call from Gareth Southgate was apparently nothing short of excellent.

“Best training performance I’ve seen to date. Whenever we talk to him, always say to him, ‘best training performance to date’,” Sterling admitted.

“He was brought up to the senior U-21s or something and he’s just arrived and I think he was at Derby at the time and I’m not even exaggerating, left foot, right foot, hash.

“It was the best practice performance I’ve seen. I haven’t seen anything better than this. Unbelievable.”

The fact that Sterling has since trained with some of the modern greats, including Kevin De Bruyne, Erling Haaland and N’Golo Kante, to name a few, is a compliment to Mount.

But it’s no surprise he pulled it out of the bag under the watchful eye of Southgate.

He was there to impress, not to invent numbers.

It’s a trait that has obviously helped Chelsea’s young midfielder remain a crucial part of the English setup ever since.

Nathaniel is a graduate football journalist from the University of Derby. He worked at Burton Albion as part of their media team for two years. Nathaniel produces regular articles for the club’s official website and matchday programme. He covered the 2018 U20 Women’s World Cup in Brittany and reported on grounds ranging from the non-league to the Premier League.

To claim:

Disney has filed a patent for a roller coaster that skips the track.

Evaluation:

On Nov. 13, 2022, @wealth’s Instagram account shared a photo that read, “Disney files patent for Roller Coaster that skips the track.” However, this headline comes from a website that publishes satirical content about Disney theme parks. We received a request about this post from a reader’s email.

Disney didn't file a patent for a roller coaster that skips the track because it was just a satire.

“The park will be closed”

The @wealth account didn’t add any hashtags or other notes indicating the post was intended as satire or parody. This led to some users posting comments that seemed to show they thought it was real news.

One user commented, “How? Another person replied, “Imagine the poor weight distribution…Disney is trying to drive its stock price down more than it already has.” A third commenter said: “A good portion of the rides at Disneyland kept breaking down this week. Please fix your current rides before focusing on a new one.”

In two other examples of comments where people thought the news was real, one person said, “This is not good for people with mental health. This is stupid. The park is going to be closed.” Another person posted: “Too many variables…mainly body weight and weather conditions. There will be a catastrophic crash sooner than later.”

Beyond these users, some people have taken a more humorous route. One person referenced a classic computer game that lets players design roller coasters and said, “I did this in RollerCoaster Tycoon. Write me a check.” Others drew comparisons to the movie “Final Destination 3,” which included a violent roller coaster crash scene.

Note: In the biography of the Instagram account @wealth, it is mentioned that it specializes in posts on business, motivation and technology, and that it is called the “World’s #1 Personal Development Blog and business!” Other posts on the account showed motivational quotes and business-related news, among other types of content.

The Mouse Trap

A quick Google search showed that the title “Disney Files Patent for Roller Coaster that Jumps Track” originally came from the satirical website known as The Mouse Trap at mousetrapnews.com. The website was named in honor of Mickey Mouse, with its humorous tagline being “The Moused Trusted Name in News”.

We’ve previously reported other satirical articles from the fun website, including stories that Disney World is removing Cinderella’s Castle, lowering the drinking age to 18, and canceling the new Splash Mountain theme.

The Mouse Trap published their rollercoaster article on October 30. Part of the story reads:

Walt Disney Imagineering (WDI) just filed a patent for a roller coaster that skips the track. This means that the roller coaster will fly through the air for part of the ride, with no track underneath. The classic video game Thrillville: Off the Rails had a track-jumping roller coaster on the cover of the game. It was a crazy idea that no one actually thought could work, but now Disney is trying to make that dream a reality.

On the website’s “About” page, it displayed a disclaimer stating, “The Mouse Trap is the best satire site in the world.” The disclaimer also added that the website focuses on Disney parks simply for “fun”.

Updates from @wealth

The @wealth Instagram account then posted two comments to update its followers on the news. One comment read, “Update: They filed the patent just to protect the idea if they ever decide to do it. That doesn’t guarantee they’ll build the ride!”

The second comment read: “Note: Photos are not an actual visual of what the ride will become, but potentially a preview of what it might look like.”

Both of these pieces of information came from the satirical article on The Mouse Trap website, which again was not a real news report.

A look back at Ange Postecoglou’s best Celtic quotes ahead of the Sydney Super Cup https://commonfolkusingcommonsense.com/a-look-back-at-ange-postecoglous-best-celtic-quotes-ahead-of-the-sydney-super-cup/ Tue, 15 Nov 2022 06:47:39 +0000 https://commonfolkusingcommonsense.com/a-look-back-at-ange-postecoglous-best-celtic-quotes-ahead-of-the-sydney-super-cup/ Ange Postecoglou is certainly leaving his mark on Scottish football, not just for winning the Scottish Premiership title last season against all odds, but for his memorable quotes.

Ange Postecoglou is certainly leaving his mark on Scottish football, not just for winning the Scottish Premiership title last season against all odds, but for his memorable quotes.

The Greek-Australian manager now has a reputation among Scots for being an outspoken speaker with a quick tongue, but also honest and open to joking.

As Celtic prepare to take on Sydney FC at the Allianz Stadium for the Sydney Super Cup on Thursday, Keep Up looks back at some of Postecoglou’s most iconic quotes in Glasgow’s East End so far.

ANGEL RETURNS

Celtic caused a stir in the UK when they took Postecoglou from J1 League side Yokohama F.Marinos ahead of the 2021-22 season.

The former Socceroos boss wasted no time in putting down the gauntlet in his first press conference as Celtic manager. When asked how he would fare working at a higher level, Postecoglou replied.

“I guess you’re saying I worked at a lower level, or something like that,” said Postecoglou, who won the 2015 AFC Asian Cup after coaching Australia at the World Cup. FIFA Men’s World Cup 2014, while guiding the Socceroos to Russia 2018.

“I guess it’s a matter of opinion. I coached at a World Cup.

Go Mate!

Postecoglou is not an alien! Ahead of his Scottish Premiership arc with Celtic last season, he joked that he wasn’t ready to face Hearts at Tynecastle.

“I’m still on the same planet, I’m not from outer space,” Postecoglou said. “You’d be surprised how much I know about Hearts.”

I AM NOT AN ACCOUNTING MATE

Postecoglou was at his classic best with this comeback.

Asked about the financial boost that European football brings, the former Brisbane Roar and Melbourne Victory manager replied: “I’m not an accountant friend. I am a soccer coach.

“When people start talking to me about finances, they miss the essence of who I am.”

ANGEL ACCENT

Postecoglou used his knowledge of the J1 League by signing Japanese trio Reo Hatate, Daizen Maeda and Yosuku Ideguchi in the January transfer window.

With all three players on board in Glasgow, Postecoglou was quick to be asked if he could understand the locals in Scotland.

“Not really,” he said.

“I’m fine. I’m sorry for the Japanese boys. They worked very hard to learn English before coming here and found it didn’t help them at all.

ARE YOU NOT AMUSED?

Postecoglou and BBC journalist Kenny McIntyre are usually box office entertainment.

The pair enjoyed some great clashes, not least when McIntyre told Postecoglou that Celtic’s 2-0 win over St Mirren was a “tough watch” last season.

“It depends on what you’re looking for,” he replied. “Maybe you’re disappointed with how it turned out, mate. I’m not really sure.

ONLY YOU CAN MAKE IT FEEL LIKE A DOWNER

Yes, it’s Postecoglou and McIntyre again… this time after Hearts’ 4-1 rout of Celtic before the Bhoys won the title last season.

McIntyre asked if Postecoglou had a preference as to when Celtic would win the title to dethrone bitter rivals Rangers.

Postecoglou joked, “Only you can make winning a championship feel like a failure.

“No, mate, anyway, thanks.”

SACKED BY CHRISTMAS: ANGE’S AWARD BARB

With the two trophies won in his first season, Postecoglou was voted PFA and SWFA manager of the year.

Postecoglou was quick to poke fun at a certain chant after some fans were quick to tip him during his spell at Celtic in 2021-22.

“At the start, there weren’t a lot of expectations in terms of success,” he said.

“Whether it was because of me and my own background or because of the ground we had to make up for.

“People just recognize the challenge we had and how we overcame that challenge.

“I’m very proud of it, but as I said that night, I didn’t get the one I was favorite for – sacked at Christmas.”

THE BEST OF THE REST

And here are other nuggets from Postecoglou.

“If you want proof of what Scottish clubs can do in Europe, there’s a trophy I can show you just down the road, mate,” Postecoglou replied last season when asked. if Rangers’ run in the UEFA Europa League had demonstrated just how well Scottish teams could do in Europe.

Ahead of Celtic’s blockbuster showdown with UEFA Champions League holders Real Madrid in September, Postecoglou bristled as he spoke of an apparent lack of ‘plan B’: “Maybe if I was German, Dutch or Spanish, people might see me differently as a manager in terms of tactics. Apparently I have a simple approach, a plan A. But we’ll stick to that.

Tennessee head coach Joe Kirt

Opening statement…

“Thank you Xavier for coming and competing well for 110 minutes, and we wish them well for the rest of the tournament. For us today we had some really good times and we created some really good chances. Jaida scored a great goal to get us started We had other chances and we didn’t take them and that’s part of the game They kept competing and fighting and scored one in the first extra time and obviously we had a really good chance to equalize coming in, and they got a long shot that goes off the crossbar and they kept fighting and kept putting balls behind us which made hard, pressing and still, we saw that a few times. But they did a good job of taking their chances and we didn’t score enough today. That was the difference in the game.

Building the foundations of the future…
I think for us, going forward, we have to keep getting tougher and more disciplined in the moment and keep putting our players in positions where they can be successful. And whether in our tactics or in our form, we must continue to develop our players and help them improve. It’s what we talk about all the time – constantly improving ourselves, being the best versions of ourselves. We must continue to do so. I have to do a great job of holding them to that. We have to improve. That’s what we’re going to do, and that’s the message to our team. We must continue to grow, learn and develop as players and as people, and we will. This is the message that goes forward. That’s how we improve. We have to heal from the sting of this. It’s incredibly difficult for all of our players. (And for) our elders Abbey (Burdette), Hannah (Zaluski), Kenz (George Mackenzie), and Lindsey (Romig), that’s never how you want to play your last game. For us, it’s about continuing to move forward in the process and improving. We have to find moments to continue making games and put them in environments to do so.”

On what the team can take with them in the future…

“I think just the hunger is probably the big problem. And then just the feeling right now sucks. We don’t want to lose on our own turf anymore.”

“I think the loss hurts us all, but I think going through the winter and spring gives us a lot of motivation to keep pushing and working hard, so hopefully we’ll keep challenging each other and we’ll improve in the spring, and it’ll show next fall.”

Xavier Head Football Coach Nate Lie

Opening statement…
I would like to congratulate Tennessee for being here. They are a great adversary. I told this story a few times when we were watching a movie for them to be scouted, I literally had to get up and leave the room a few times because it made me nervous and nauseous. They have an insane amount of offensive talent, power and will really stretch you. And they had very good chances. Maria Galley arrived in a big way. The game could have gone the other way had they had a rebound or two. Also, a story about Joe Kirt: I’m really happy for him to have this opportunity. He and I had been assistant coaches for a while, and I think he really deserves it. We were here in 2018, and we were a new program and trying to take stock of how we treat our equipment and everything. We were making a point about the balls. All three were there (Rachel Dewey, Brooke Sroka, Molly McLaughlin). There were kicked balls over the goal in the woods and after the game, which we lost pretty badly, I went back into the woods to try to get them back, and it was early. I was bleeding when I came out, and Joe (Kirt) was there with me, and I don’t know another coach who would have ever thought of doing that. It shows his character, and his team plays with a lot of class. It was a great game. These big games come down to big wins and big players. I think fortunately we have found those moments and we have those players. I don’t know about overtime. We have five meetings this year. We found two overtime in the playoffs and scored five goals in two overtime games. Part of that could be the depth we use and are proud of. I think we used seven or eight subs for at least 20 minutes, six subs for at least 40 minutes. I think we were able to use our bench well over Tennessee, which may have had an impact on the game. They have special players that made it very scary for quite a while.

On whether overtime was schematically different or whether it was execution…

“We held on. I think Molly (McLaughlin), who plays the six for us and is a big part of our attacking talent, held on a little deeper. (We) just had more numbers behind the ball, I didn’t want to get beaten by a big ball or a mistake. We have players who can follow it and others who can dribble three of our players and still caused us a lot of problems. We didn’t change anything , whether it’s form or tactics. Talking to us about risk versus reward. We felt comfortable tonight.

Graduate Midfielder Molly McLaughlin

On how tonight’s win felt after the Big East loss last week…

“We weren’t happy with the way this game went, and we thought we left some things on the table. So it was just a matter of trying to put together a full game and picking the things that we missed in the last game and implementing them in this one. Here you are one and you are done so you have to leave it all on the field. They (Tennessee) have incredible talent, but we “We also have talent. We are a real family and I think it came to play today, and we were really lucky to get a win.”

Graduate striker Brooke Sroka

In losing in the first round of the NCAA Tournament last year, what if tonight’s win was sweeter because of it…

“I obviously think it’s a nice feeling after last year. We like being the underdogs, and we function better when we’re the underdogs, because that’s what we grew up in this program. The simple fact Maintaining that mentality throughout has helped us improve from last year.”

Graduate Midfielder Rachel Dewey

On Maria Galley’s defensive effort…

“The defense as a whole, I really think we work well with each other. The communication struggled a bit, and I think today it really worked. Maria (Galley) really used her voice and came out strong and confident today.. She saved one where she pulled out of the box and cleaned it. It showed her confidence. I think as a freshman, it is huge because she kind of locks us right in there. I also want to shout out Natalie Bain, she’s everywhere. She’s able to go side to side really well. I think working for the person next to you is the most important thing, and we always want to do that.

96 Second Supercut’s Jim Irsay’s Craziest Quotes From Jeff Saturday’s Intro Press Conference Is The Best NFL Video Of The Season https://commonfolkusingcommonsense.com/96-second-supercuts-jim-irsays-craziest-quotes-from-jeff-saturdays-intro-press-conference-is-the-best-nfl-video-of-the-season/ Wed, 09 Nov 2022 20:01:35 +0000 https://commonfolkusingcommonsense.com/96-second-supercuts-jim-irsays-craziest-quotes-from-jeff-saturdays-intro-press-conference-is-the-best-nfl-video-of-the-season/ Giphy pictures.

I know this press conference was over 36 hours ago, but honestly, I can’t get enough of it. You can give me the best NFL highlights of the season with Chris Berman WHOOPING like his 1998 all the time. But no NFL content will top that 96 seconds of glorious mayhem.

Jim Irsay’s press conference was so crazy you almost forget he hired a former player who had a 20-16 career coaching a high school football team to become the head coach. of his NFL football team midway through the season. Granted, that’s probably exactly what someone whose franchise was in the top quartiles of the NFL’s top quartile this century because he drafted two franchise QBs with the number 1 pick wanted to do, so you don’t realize not that he’s doing everything in his power to lock in the No. 1 pick this year (that Week 1 tie against the Texans means whoever wins the next game means he could be out of the No. 1 draft).

We’ve all seen most of these quotes on Twitter and John Rich perfectly blogged all the chaos like Abe Froman making sausages or Elon landing on Mars. But when you watch everything in the video there are so many amazing phrases that don’t make sense when talking about an NFL football team you almost think it’s one of those NFL Bad videos Lip Reading, scream the orange peanut Adrian Peterson had years ago.

I think the fact that the Colts called the press conference when there was a Monday night football game going on kind of took the focus away, which is such a shame because it was really the some of the best content I’ve seen in 2022. I would have actually bought ESPN+ if they had had a Manningcast stream where Peyton and Eli gave their unfiltered thoughts from the press conference during the game’s commercial breaks , though Eli probably would’ve just done the thing where he stares open-mouthed while Peyton would’ve only given politician-level shots considering he’s spent over a decade of his life getting so intimate with Jeff Saturday than a man can be.

Ultimately, this video shows how much we need more Jim Irsay in our lives. I don’t want to hear about him every time he changes coaches, quarterbacks, or whoever I imagine will soon be GM (I have Mike Vanderjagt taking on that role). Every time a microphone is placed in front of Jim Irsay, whether at training camp or the Super Bowl, it needs to be pushed over every form of media Roger Goodell uses to shove the NFL down our throats.

Hell if NBC had a brain they would hire Irsay to replace Jason Garrett this second since I would give anything to get irsayisms about all the chaos that just unfolded on an NFL Sunday instead of the worst coordinator offense I’ve ever seen in my life, criticizing coaches and players who are much better than him.

Hilton Smythe has renewed its Silver Patron status for the fifth time with local children’s charity, the Bolton Lads and Girls Club.

The club, which recently underwent a £2.4million renovation, was established in 1889 and is one of the biggest youth clubs in the UK. It offers year-round support for people aged 8 to 19, with people with disabilities being able to stay until the age of 21.

Hilton Smythe co-founder and COO Craig Graham and business development manager Belinda Daniels were invited to tour the building, which is now decorated with inspirational quotes and features brand new sports, games and music facilities.

Since opening in 2011, the Bolton-based national business advisory firm has supported several good causes. Yet as permanent residents of Bolton, the company directors have a special affinity with the Bolton Lads and Girls Club, becoming patrons of the club in 2017.

Craig Graham said: “Supporting the Bolton Lads and Girls Club over the past five years has been so important to us. As founders of Hilton Smythe, it was very important to Gareth and me that we give back to the local community, and the work the club does for local young people is amazing. We are delighted to be part of its history.

“It was fantastic to see all the hard work that has gone into revamping the premises, and the new facilities are brilliant. The youngsters who use the club will have a fantastic time.

Karen Edwards OBE, Chief Operating Officer of Bolton Lads and Girls Club, said: “We were absolutely delighted to welcome the proud Silver Patrons Hilton Smythe to BLGC during the mid-term holidays in October. We believe it is important for all of our patrons and supporters to be able to experience first-hand the impact they have first-hand through their support.

“One of our values ​​here at BLGC is ‘caring’, which is having genuine people who care about us, who make a difference. This also extends to our patrons and we thank Hilton Smythe for their care and for helping to make a difference so that we can support even more children and young people at a time when they need us more than ever.

10 Quotes That Prove Meredith And Alex Had The Best Friendship https://commonfolkusingcommonsense.com/10-quotes-that-prove-meredith-and-alex-had-the-best-friendship/ Fri, 28 Oct 2022 23:35:00 +0000 https://commonfolkusingcommonsense.com/10-quotes-that-prove-meredith-and-alex-had-the-best-friendship/ Grey’s Anatomy is back with season 19, bringing back old faces with new ones.

Grey’s Anatomy is back with season 19, bringing back old faces with new ones. And while the canvas is still blank when it comes to new residents, it’s exciting to think about the endless possibilities. ‘Cause if there’s one thing Greyexcels, he builds relationships that fans love.


After Cristina left, fans were sure no friendship would ever come close to the one she shared with Meredith. And yet, they were wrong because there is solid evidence that the friendship between Alex and Meredith was just as good, if not better.

VIDEO OF THE DAY

“Yang left me her shares and her seat on the board of directors and she left me you too.”

Alex Karev (Season 11, Episode 1)

Cristina Yang’s exit from Grey’s Anatomy left a huge void, mostly because she was Meredith’s best friend and person. Even though Alex and Meredith were already very close, Alex took this as a sign that he needed to keep an eye on Meredith and took his duty very seriously.

RELATED: Grey’s Anatomy’s 10 Best Quotes According To Reddit

In a heartwarming quote, he admits to Meredith that Cristina left her shares of the hospital and the board seat to him, but she also left Meredith to him. The truth was that even though it took Cristina leaving for their friendship to grow stronger, they were still meant to be each other’s person.

“…You have earned the right to pick and choose who you want to let in.”

Alex Karev (Season 15, Episode 3)

Full Quote: “With everything you’ve lost in your life, you’ve earned the right to choose who you want to let in.”

One of the reasons this friendship is so great and a fan favorite on Grey’s Anatomy is that they have known each other since the beginning. Meredith knew Alex when he was a jerk, and he knew her when she was all “dark and curvy.” He’s seen the things she’s been through, and that’s why he’s qualified to talk about it.

When Meredith complains about being called shut down and admits that she sometimes is, he reassures her that she has earned the right not to let everyone in. It’s a quote that shows just how deep his respect and understanding of Meredith is.

“People are what matters. Alex is one of us…”

Meredith Gray (Season 3, Episode 18)

Full quote: “…We can’t just leave it out in the cold.”

Even back when Alex was still sometimes unpleasant to be around, Meredith saw something more in him. Sure, he was arrogant towards the nurses and cheating on Izzie, but he was still part of their intern class and to Meredith that meant something.

Maybe she saw the potential in Alex, or maybe she had blind faith, but she didn’t give up on him when everyone else did, and that was a clear sign. that she cared about him.

“Meredith always makes me think screwed up people have a chance.”

Alex Karev (Season 3, Episode 17)

One of the things that always held Alex Karev back was his low self-esteem. He hid it behind walls of arrogance and rudeness, but deep down he was bluffing through life, trying to convince himself he deserved to be there. That was why he always had problems with his relationships, and why he made stupid mistakes that drove others away.

And it took something extraordinary to let go of that image. It took someone who saw beyond his facade, saw him for all he was, and decided to love him anyway. Meredith was that person for Alex, and even a few seasons ago she made him think that maybe he had a chance, even if he was screwed.

“I’ll swing down for you, Alex…”

Meredith Gray (Season 13, Episode 9)

Full Quote: “…You know I will. But that means you can’t give up.”

Grey’s Anatomy has a great way of bringing audiences back with their storylines and Alex’s run-in with the law was one of the biggest storylines of the season. Watching it unfold slowly was painful for the audience. Alex was finally facing real consequences for one of his actions, and it could have been what ruined his career and even his life.

But there was one person who never doubted him and never turned his back on him. Meredith immediately told Alex she would come down swinging for him. Of course, this made his decision to protect Jo even more painful, as even in his worst moments he tried to be selfless for the woman he loved.

“I want waffle Sundays.”

Alex Karev (Season 13, Episode 6)

It was such a loaded moment because Alex thought he was going to jail and his wishes in that scene say a lot about the kind of person he is. And what that tells the audience is that he considers Meredith his family, so he wants to spend as much time with her as possible.

The scene almost reads like he’s saying goodbye to Meredith, and there are some interesting parallels to Cristina’s speech in her final episode. But the bottom line of it all is that Meredith is Alex’s family, and he sees her in every version of his future. It’s scenes like these that make Grey’s one of the best medical dramas streaming today.

” Where is he ? I’m going to kill him. He hurt you? Are you hurt? »

Alex Karev (Season 12, Episode 16)

Alex’s protective nature is just one of the reasons fans loved him so much. Meredith was the person he protected the most because he saw with his own eyes what she went through in life. And the amount of trauma she went through literally became one of the Grey’s Anatomyplot holes.

This scene could have been meant as funny, set when he comes home after Meredith had sex with a guy for the first time after Derek died. However, it really showed the kind of guy Alex had become and what he was willing to do for the people he loved.

“But you do.”

Meredith Gray (Season 11, Episode 1)

Even though Alex said he didn’t know what she meant when Meredith called her person, Meredith knew for a fact that he did. Alex was her person for a while, even when Cristina was still around. And when Alex hesitantly offers his shoulder to cry or “whatever,” Meredith reassures him with this quote.

The way Alex said it was almost like he was trying not to overstep, and with those three little words, Meredith tells him that he already knows how to be his person, because it didn’t take that Cristina leaves so that he takes over. the role.

“Look, she stayed by my side for years when everyone else was gone, no matter what.”

Alex Karev (Season 12, Episode 8)

Alex is loyal to a fault, and that becomes very evident when Meredith becomes a problem in her relationship with Jo. When Jo accuses him of always siding with Mer, he tells her that she was the only one there for him for years, when everyone else left.

Even though it hurts Jo to hear it, Alex doesn’t retract her initial statement. Because there was a time when everyone left, and Alex knows very well who stayed.

“Alex is my… He’s my Alex…”

Meredith Gray (Season 14, Episode 24)

Full quote: “…I’m just happy in a world without Cristina and Derek, and I don’t want to be alone.”

Alex played a big part in Meredith’s journey to happiness after suffering the tremendous loss of not only her best friend who moved across the world, but also having to mourn her husband while simultaneously being pregnant with her child.

But Alex didn’t let that stop him. He knew about Meredith’s tactic of pushing people away and he stayed anyway. It’s a wonderful scene in which Meredith has embraced her vulnerability and admits she doesn’t want to lose him. It’s a poignant moment where she shares how important he is to her.
