Johnny Lattner won the Heisman Trophy in 1953 as a halfback for Notre Dame, and he has a unique relationship with his trophy.

He lends it out. He'll give it to a group, like a school, that will auction off having the trophy for a week as a prize. In fact, there's a golf outing coming up that is pitching a week with Lattner's trophy as a silent auction prize:

Pretty cool, right? Can't imagine a cooler traveling companion than Heisman, unless you can somehow get a hold of Stanley for a week.

But what does one do with Heisman once you've won him for a week? Well, here are a few ideas:

Just lounge around on the couch, chat him up a bit. (His stories on Paul Hornung alone could take up the whole week.) ...

If he's in the mood for some fun, take him out to party at the club (though it might be problematic that he has just one hand to throw in the air like he just don't care) ...

Maybe he wants to gamble a bit (only problem: He always stands on his first two cards) ...

Or perhaps he wants to get really get crazy and go bungee jumping off a bridge ...
