Football & the Nobel Peace Prize

We'd like the Green Bay Packers to become the first team in the National Football League to win the Nobel Peace Prize.

We'd do this by mailing brief human-rights petitions along with the football tickets. We'd reach 73,000 people per game.

We got the Nobel Prizewinning Foreign Minister of East Timor to campaign for the idea, and we also got a note of encouragement from the First Lady of the United States.

I spoke with the president of the Green Bay Packers several times, and he was receptive to the idea. The tickets have already been sent out this year, so we'll shoot for next year.

Reward: Getting Vince Lombardi canonized as the Patron Saint of Football.
