Good morning, and— oh would you look at this:

Taj Davis announces he's returning to the Bay Area:
Cal has landed a commitment from Washington wide receiver transfer Taj Davis, via his Instagram.— 247Sports Transfer Portal (@247SportsPortal) May 17, 2023
Davis has a combined 606 yards and 4 TDs over the last 2 seasons.https://t.co/mLtIMAixgu pic.twitter.com/ncuJonqUYD
I'll be rooting for him except when he's playing us.
And most importantly, we have the annual Charitibundi Bowl put on by ye olde good/fun crew from Shutdown Fullcast/formerly Every Day Should Be Saturday/Moon Crew/Channel 6/Vacation Bible School/ya know what, you get it.
Right up top: Here's where you can donate. DONATE. DONATE NOW HERE.
But anyways: YOUR Washington Huskies are getting beaten — for the second year in a row — by some colonial soundin-ass school from I can only assume Virginia or Massachusetts:
We bring you the annual tradition of Washington & Lee being the true rival & me refusing to look up what or where Washington & Lee is https://t.co/3Ct74qHGFu— De UW Dawg Pound (@UWonSBN) May 18, 2023
(Last year I ragged on Washington & Lee for clearly based on name alone being some bastion of WASP-ness and someone decided to take that very seriously in the comments and defend Washington & Lee against my clearly Very Serious claims. If that person is reading this now and feeling inclined to once more fight that fight: Stop it.)
(Seriously though, if your school is named after two dudes separated by an ampersand, that's WASP. I don't make the rules.)
(Oh god, is the “Lee” in “Washington &” who I think it is? Please no.)
Anyways, here are some of the best UW-related donations and pitches so far, which will hopefully inspire you all to beat them — not necessarily in amount, but in creativity-bordering-on-insanity:
U-Dub has been so strong this year, gonna buy a sailboat I hate and sink for the insurance money as a tribute https://t.co/NSP9ey8cRA— BUM CHILLUPS AKA SPENCER HALL (@edsbs) May 17, 2023
Greatest setting in college football for maritime insurance fraud, print the Tshirt @HomefieldApparl— Undi Galaga (@cascadiapirate) May 17, 2023
Day 2 of Dawgposting is short but sweet. It would be too mean to just donate one dollar for every season of Oregon Ducks football without a national title, so I’ll throw in one cent for their one Heisman winner. Nice job, Marcus.@edsbs @HollyAnderson @newampaths @UWonSBN pic.twitter.com/ki0rpxJ1Ow— Clayton (@i_am_bread_dad) May 16, 2023
Here for biblically themed football lore too https://t.co/tCKqlVDpdI— BUM CHILLUPS AKA SPENCER HALL (@edsbs) May 15, 2023
And of course, what has become an annual tradition here, while we collectively are competing for Washington's moral superiority, you are all individually competing — whether you want to or not — for this:
A reminder for the third year in a row, the most creative donation gets a rebate for the exact price of their favorite beer sent to their venmo:https://t.co/h5V3SqxB5A— De UW Dawg Pound (@UWonSBN) May 15, 2023
So tag us in your Charitibundi Bowl donations and at the end of this all we (read: I personally) will venmo you the exact amount of your favorite beer.
Do good things, don't do bad things, and bow down to Washington.
