@jesus_phish: After beating the level, Patrick generously offered to split it evenly instead of having all $10,000 go to his preferred charity, the AHA. He said he never expected it to get so high and wanted both charities to get money from the event.
They are still accepting donations for the next day until Thursday morning when the challenge is officially up; so, if anyone wants to up the total even further and help it pass $11,000, you can donate here: https://www.gofundme.com/theryckoning
They're both super classy individuals, despite what some people want to think. I was fully expecting that to happen if either of them won, especially since this kinda stupid thing actually brought it a decent chunk of money.
Also that goal post death... I was playing HotS with the stream in the background, and all I hear is Patrick scream NOOOOO. Had to go back and see what happened. If he hadn't beaten it shortly afterwards, man that would've been tragic.
My wife and I absolutely died laughing when that happened, followed by us immediately feeling terrible for Patrick. I have never seen him look so heartbroken. Watching Dan's Periscope stream simultaneously was an amazing experience.
