More than 200 people have paid this kid. We counted. pic.twitter.com/2Hxm5HtgRR— College GameDay (@CollegeGameDay) September 10, 2016
As ESPN broadcast its College Game Day show yesterday, you could see the usual crowd of college students behind the commentators. One of them was Sam Crowder, who held up this sign. It had his Venmo ID on it. (Venmo is a money transfer app.) Before the day was over, around 2,000 people had sent Crowder some money! Yes, the amounts could have been as low as a penny, but we assume not all of them were, so the total amount could be substantial. Venmo itself sent him $50.
Update: More than 2,000 users have paid Sam. We counted. https://t.co/s6kMWEWXW4— Venmo (@venmo) September 10, 2016
There will, no doubt, be more such signs in the crowd next Saturday, but this kind of jackpot only pays off big once. No word yet as to whether Crowder’s mother sent anything. -via reddit
