1) Albert Camus was born in Algeria. He won a Nobel Prize.
2) Claude Cohen-Tannoudji was born in Algeria. He won a Nobel Prize.
3) I was not born in Algeria. I have not won a Nobel Prize.
4) Monsieur Camus played goalie for the University of Algiers soccer team.
5) I played goalie a few time in Australian league play.
6) So, playing soccer doesn’t help you win a Nobel Prize. And Monsieur Cohen-Tannoudji got his prize without any known soccer playing. And calling the game football doesn’t help either.
7) The main thing is to be born in Algeria.
