Trivia: Heisman's Contribution to American Football

Coach John Heisman (yes, of the American football trophy fame) divided the game into quarters, invented the center snap and the "hike" yell, and made popular the forward pass.

Ever year, the Heisman Trophy is awarded to the most outstanding college football player in the United States. No Heisman Trophy winner has ever visited John Heisman's grave in Rhinelander, Wisconsin. (Photo: Robert J. La Verghetta [Wikipedia])

I'VE been to Rhinelander, but I was too drunk the whole time to remember if we went to Heisman's grave.

I'm too drunk right now to remember whether or not I won the Heisman trophy.

It's great being drunk, though! :)
