PHOTO: Michigan fans leave $3,000 tip for Utah waitress
For Michigan fans who made the trip to Salt Lake City on Thursday to see the Wolverines’ first game under coach Jim Harbaugh, the outcome may not have been what they had in mind, as Utah came out on top, 24-17.
But apparently at least one group of Wolverines fans didn’t hold a grudge, as one lucky waitress found out after the game.
Brendan Quinn, of MLive Media Group, came across a photo of this incredible gesture.

Per FOX 13 Salt Lake City’s report, the waitress — Bre Snow, an employee of the Bourbon House restaurant — was the beneficiary of the $3,000 act of kindness, about a 600-percent tip.
According to the reports, the unidentified Michigan fans arrived after their team’s loss, at a time when Snow had already "checked out for the night" from her shift. But she started serving the guests anyway, and they wanted to show their appreciation.
“They’re like, ‘We want to give this to you. We want to make your day,’ and it did, and I started tearing up,” Snow said, per the FOX 13 report.
Snow told the station that the money will mean a lot for her and her boyfriend, who are both working two jobs to make ends meet.
“After working so hard, to get just a great payoff from it just really touched me, and I really am grateful,” Snow told the station.
Snow might might be rooting for Michigan this year.
