Help us beat Stanford (and the rest of the Pac-12)
And also help a great charitable cause at the same time!
Many of you are likely familiar with the annual Every Day Should Be Saturday charity bowl. Spencer Hall, Holly Anderson, and the rest of the EDSBS crew put lots of effort into rallying the college football community to support New American Pathway, an Atlanta-based charity that helps refugees get settled and established. Things like housing, job assistance, child services, or anything else that helps lead towards self-sufficiency.
Honestly, that’s enough right there. But the extra fun? COMPETITIVE SPITE DONATIONS. The charity bowl requires you to donate on behalf of your school, ideally in a way that reveals the way in which your rival sucks (more on that below). How do you donate? Here’s the link:
And how competitive is the 2021 edition of the charity bowl? Right now Cal fans are proving who’s best in the west:
But that lead isn’t guaranteed to stick around. There are plenty of Johnny-come-lately Oregon fans, and Arizona State has a bit of a built-in advantage this year:
But good news! If you donate between now and Friday, and either tag @aguynamednam on twitter or provide proof of your donation in the comments of this article, your donations up to $2,000 will be matched by an anonymous Cal fan:
“Nick” you might ask, “can you give me some examples of how to donate in a way that maximizes humiliation of Stanford/other rivals?” FRIEND I’M GLAD YOU ASKED!
A good choice? NERD SCIENCE BURNS:

Maybe you’d prefer to highlight some notable Cal wins:
Holly Anderson @HollyAnderson*if you are new here: 1) welcome, 2) we are about to try and raise a whole lot of money for @newampaths, a thing we attempt every year on behalf of our idiot college football collective, an institution once known as Every Day Should Be Saturday, 3) join us, won't you?
. . . like when Jahvid Best humiliated UW:
Holly Anderson @HollyAndersonGeorgia I can't believe how far y'all are dragging behind already, it's not like you have to tithe, get in here: https://t.co/xyj255qY1Z #CharitibundiBowl
. . . or when Aaron Rodgers humiliated UW:
BUM CHILLUPS AKA SPENCER HALL @edsbsWe ask followers/listeners to donate in a very specific format: in the form of a score of a game where your team/school destroyed the hopes and dreams of a rival
My first donation was a bit more personal:
But I’m considering a couple of Stanford embarrassments for donation #2 later this week:
Whether you donate $12.10 to commemorate Evan Weaver’s interception to beat UW, or $135.00 to remember a particularly brutal Cal rugby win over Stanford, there’s no wrong total. The important thing? SPITE! Just make sure to earn your picture of Spencer by Friday night, when the officially competitive portion of the charity bowl ends. DONATE BEARS!
