Practicing a method well

On January 17, 2010, "60 Minutes" did a piece on football players from Samoa with a tag line like: how a territory with a smaller population than a pro-football stadium sends more players to the NFL than any similarly populated place in America. IPBiz does not recall mention of Mosi Tatupu in that piece. Tatupu, who played for the USC Trojans and the Patriots (1978 to 1990), died on 23 February 2010.

In terms of invention, the folks in Samoa didn't invent football, but they did seem to come up with a way to efficiently produce good football players. One doubts they have a business method patent on it.
