In a prime example of creative fundraising, wealthy boosters can pay $1 million to share a meal in the home of Florida football coach Urban Meyer and spend the day with Meyer and his staff, complete with a session breaking down film. The Gainesville (Fla.) Sun reports this and other fundraising efforts will help a major renovation project at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
Watching film with Coach Meyer sounds more like work than pleasure to us, but we imagine this could be the thrill of a lifetime for a Gators fan. The day-after conversation could go something like this:
Donor: Honey, it was... [catches breath and collects thoughts] ... Urban Meyer! He was right there! And we watched film! On Ole Miss! And he was wearing sweats!
Donor's Wife: What did Mrs. Meyer make for dinner?
Donor: Meatloaf! Best I've ever had! It was coated with ketchup! Heinz ketchup! Not that Albertson's-brand shit you buy! And Urban Meyer was there! In his sweats!
Donor's Wife: Get out.
That, folks, is the most expensive piece of meatloaf a man may ever eat. But...Urban Meyer! In sweats!
