Having just seen Fever Pitch, I was amused by this story about a judge who "ordered a woman convicted of theft to decide whether to spend 90 days in jail or donate her family's Packers tickets next season to charity." Can you imagine the family pressure for her to take the jail time? "C'mon, Mom, take one for the team!"
In the meantime, tax professors are debating whether she would get a charitable deduction for the donation.
UPDATE: Thanks to Eric Goldman, who followed up on the story and discovered that she gave up the tickets. The key fact: the judge threatened to have her serve the sentence during football season.
