The Soccer Nobel Prizes Are Way Better Than The Regular Nobel Prizes

The Nobel Prizes are the highest honors humans can receive. We made them even better.

The Nobel Prizes are being announced this week and next, honoring achievements in the most vital disciplines. The Nobel Prizes have honored some of the top scientists, authors, philosophers and politicians in the world, without the likes of whom human progress would be slowed. Also, Bob Dylan for some reason.

That got us thinking: why let the smartest people in the world have all the fun? SPORTS!

So we made some Nobel Prizes just for us, the soccer community.

The Soccer Nobel Prize For Physiology Or Medicine


Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who (glances nervously off camera) is recovering MASTERFULLY from his knee injury, making a better recovery than (glances off camera again) anyone in the history of sports.

(camera pans around real quick to reveal Zlatan, leering menacingly at me)

Tell Jose I'm coming
