Those of us outside of Washington State might not be aware of the fierce rivalry between the Washington State University Cougars and the University of Washington Huskies. Each year, the two school's football teams clash in The Apple Cup, which moves back and forth between the two school's stadiums. When the event is held at WSU, UW must travel over the mountains to the small town of Pullman, where weather can cause serious concerns.



This year, on Thanksgiving day, snow caused a bus full of University of Washington marching band students to overturn in the town of George, Washington (real place).



Thankfully, no students were seriously injured, althougha "couple dozen" had to be treated for "cuts, concussions, and pain." Residents of George stepped up and cared for the injured band members, opening a local elementary school so that the nearly 300 people traveling with UW could treat their wounded and "regroup."



The 500 residents of George, who all happen to be WSU fans, went above and beyond to share their Thanksgiving with the band in need.

When the WSU band learned of the accident and realized the UW band wouldn't be able to make it to the Apple Bowl, they knew they had to do something. In the less than 24 hours before the big game, they learned their rivals' fight song and used it to open the yearly battle. A section of the stadium was also left empty in honor of the band members who couldn't attend.




The Cougars would go on to lose the Apple Cup, but they won the hearts of many people on Twitter:








UW and WSU have taught us all that even the most bitter rivals can be there for each other when there is true need. The Apple Cup is cold every year, but our hearts have been sufficiently warmed.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.
