Henry Kissinger???

The former U.S. Secretary of State is 85 years old.

But that hasn't stopped him from taking on a new project: getting his country the World Cup.

Henry Kissinger helped bring the event to the U.S.A. in '94 and had attended almost all of them since.
"I obviously want the World Cup to come here," the Nobel Peace Prize-winner and soccer fan told reporters at a briefing to announce his involvement with the U.S. soccer federation's bid for the 2018 or 2022 tournament.

"I don't think we have a huge chance in 2018, it will probably go to Europe, but you can't tell. We have a good chance for 2022," added Kissinger.

"I'll be 99 years old (in 2022), so it's sort of an obligation to stay around."
Thanks Henry. Nice to know you're in our corner.
