There have beenthousands and thousands of signs at ESPNs College Gameday, but there wasone in particular this week in Bristol, Tennessee, that might just be the most successful game day sign ever and it paid off pretty big.
Sam Crowder found himself short of cash, so he made a sign addressed to his mom, and asked her to Venmo him some money.
Then he held the sign up on live television, and lucky for him, itwas caught on TV behind the anchors.
His mother didnt send money, but more than 400 random people did.
Crowders Venmo was soon freaking out, and people were praising his creativity on Twitter.
Because it was so successful, Venmo deposited $50 into Crowder’s account, saying to ESPN, “Cheers to Sam Crowder. He created the perfect sign to inspire his friends to contribute to his beer fund. To recognize this ingenuity, the Venmo team has ponied up $50 for the cause. Next round’s on us. Well played, sir. Well played.”
There’s still no word on whether Crowder’s mother eventuallysent him any money, but I’m willing to bet you a beer that next week there will be no less than hundreds of signs asking people for beer money.
However, this round goes to Crowder.
