Explain the point of this --- please.

Sometimes I don't understand the things you Earthlings do. For instance:
The crew of the space shuttle Atlantis will donate a coin that traveled into space for use in the official coin toss at Super Bowl XLIV.
The crew finished an 11-day trip in November that included three spacewalks and installation of two platforms to the International Space Station.
Along with the coin, Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys jerseys and a football inscribed with the names of all Hall of Fame members were on the shuttle flight. All the items will be presented to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, tomorrow.
They took a coin, a football and two jerseys up in the Shuttle for the sole purpose of flying them around the Earth a few hundred times, bring them back and enshrine them with the idea that something special happened.
Pardon me if I don't understand the significance of putting inanimate objects into space and pretending they did something special. How is the coin any different than a regular coin? When they introduce the coin flip at the Super Bowl (copyrighted) and talk about how the coin just got back from space, I suppose people will cheer ... the coin. "Way to go, coin!"
Here's an idea: Have one of the Shuttle astronauts come out and flip a regular coin. An actual living person who has flown in space. What a radical concept.
Then they will construct a special display in Canton for the party of toys with space experience. People will look at them and marvel at how they appear to be exactly like the coins, jerseys and balls that have been confined to Earth's gravity for many years.
It's all so incredible.

I'm a science and space lover and all but I think NASA's budget needs to be cut wayyyyy back.
