I can't name one Nobel Prize Winner. I can name at least 5 Heisman trophy winners. Heisman baby.

Heisman. Then, as a result, I could probably get a multi-million dollar contract from the pros before I choke and become a nobody again.

The Nobel would be more cool to have sitting on your mantel, but the Heisman is basically a blank check. Nobody pays Nobel winners for their autographs...at least, I don't think they do.

Nobel laureates are more sure of being successful at the highest level of their chosen profession. Look at Desmond Howard. Or Eric Crouch or Charlie Ward.

Heisman is rarer though, only one per year.

It was close, but I'll take the Nobel.

You guys do realize that you get several million dollars for a Nobel Prize, right?? And you don't have to chew on Pez Vicodin in your 40's.

Really though, wouldn't winning a Hiesman be more like winning a Pulitzer, and winning a Nobel be more like MVP of the NFL or something? As far as levels of skill and money.

Maybe with your friends. Mine would say, "What is that and what is it for?" They would all recognize the Heisman.

I thought it was only about $100k or so, but I could well be wrong about that.

They get paid 1000s of dollars to go speak at colleges and such (depending on what nobel prize you win), but not anything like a Heisman would get.

Surely you can pick up a Hiesman on Ebay.


If I had a Nobel prize, I would always introduce myself as "Zebedee Dubois.....Nobel Laureate" The girls would swoon.

I might be wanting to change my vote.

Can you spend it on anything you want, or do you have to use it for the advancement of knowledge?
