Sam Crowder found himself short of cash on College Gameday, so he did what any normal kid would do: he made himselfa sign addressed to his mom, and asked her to Venmo him some cash. Then heheld the sign up on live television.
13 new accounts have been created on Venmo with the goal of hoping to confuse people who want to pay this guy pic.twitter.com/fFJE2lAt2J

Yes, he really did. And yes, it worked.
Wherever theres a will, theres a way.Or put another way, wherever theres a need for beer, beer money will be raised.
Crowders Venmo was soon popping off, with over 250 people sending him money, and praising his creativity on Twitter. Some people even called him a genius. Bit far.

Crowders sign prompted over 250 people to send him money via Venmo after the GameDay sign went viral this morning. The sign simply read Hi Mom! Send beer money. SamC2270.
Am I missing something? This just doesnt make any sense to me.
