‘College GameDay’ Attendee Requests Money For Beer, Viewers Oblige
People who show up early to be in the background of ESPN’s “College GameDay” always struck me as weird. Is it really worth committing your whole morning to standing around just so people can see your wacky sign? It turns that if your name is Sam Crowder, it is very much worth it.
Sam decided to ask his mom for beer money. It’s an old gag, but Sam decided to update it for these modern times by adding his Venmo handle to the sign. Viewers appreciated his initiative and started sending money his way at an unprecedented rate.

Over 400 people have donated to Sam’s beer fund, so assuming they each sent more than a penny, he has definitely made well over $4.00. Success!
Of course, this will now kick off a trend where people try this every week. It’s doubtful anyone will be as successful as the original.
