The Tebow effect explained?

TED talks are where the world's most fascinating thinkers and doers are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes or less). In this one, Michael Norton explains the effect of giving and how it makes you happier. In the study, he found that in sports, teams even perform better (and even dominate) if the players actively give gifts instead of focusing on buying things for themselves. Seems like a possible explanation (at least partially) of the Tebow effect we had last year. It might even be a productive policy to require players in their contracts to give back to the community and each other. I'm not sure how you could regulate it, but even if they were given an allowance to spend on others, it couldn't hurt our chances. Check out the talk (it's only 11 minutes) and please discuss whether you think it'd be a worthy effort or just a lot of hokum.
