Inasmuch as the planet is orbiting along a predictable and rather vital path and altering it would be inadvisable, the game we will play will not so much be to get the earth into the goal as to maneuver your goal around the earth.

All competing teams will construct a goal with a mouth larger than the earth. First team to do so and successfully maneuver the goal so that the planet is completely within the goal wins.

Simple, exciting, and fun. Root for your home team! USA! USA!

       Hm. What defensive maneuvers are permitted?

       Well, waug, I'm not sure Canada could pass the qualifying prelims, but your welcome to root for us. Defensively, you may use your goal to move your opponents', if you can gain the inertial advantage.

       What's can the goal be made of, greenhouse gases? There would be the risk that it would pass through the ozone hole.

       How do we know we aren't already playing this?
