TRAGICALLY, IT WAS FOR BUSCH LIGHT

A football fan who held up a sign requesting beer money in the background of an ESPN broadcast said he ended up raising more then $20,000.

With the match from Busch and Venmo he's over a million now.

It should be THAN, not THEN. It is not Dave's mistake, but the "journalist".
Also, the guy raised more THAN a million dollars and he is donating the money to a charity.

That's income, even if he donates it. The IRS is going to take its share.

*Hands Qaz a Valium* although I do agree with you.
Good for him for doing something nice with the money!

@nc - yes, Vallium and beer is the essential part of my breakfast.

@Qac - I thought Vallium and beer were the breakfast of ex-champions

Please ignore my last post.

FWIW, the charity is the Stead Family Children's Hospital - the monstrous new facility that overlooks Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City.

This is the one at which the kids and their parents press to the windows to see the entire crowd, teams, and officials wave to them (or wave iPhone flashlights if it's dark) at the end of the second quarter of every Iowa home game.

Also, FWIW, the count IS above $1M at the moment. The beer guy is employed by a local casino who is helping him deal with any tax or accounting issues he may face.

The charity is the Stead Family Children's Hospital. It's a monstrous new facility that overlooks Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City.

For a few minutes at the end of the 1st quarter of every Iowa home game, the entire crowd, including fans, press, teams, and officials wave to all the kids at the hospital that are able to get to the windows and wave back. If it's dark, the fans wave iPhone flashlights.

It's pretty cool.
