Extended Oxford English Dictionary 1999 Edition : "It came into use after HH Stephenson took three wickets in three balls for the all-England eleven against the twenty-two of Hallam at the Hyde Park ground, Sheffield in 1858. A collection was held for Stephenson (as was customary for outstanding feats by professionals) and he was presented with a cap or hat bought with the proceeds."

It's wrongly called a hat trick in football most of the time just cos he scores 3 goals.  If he gets 3 in row with nobody else in between, then it's a hat trick but if he gets the 1st, 2nd and 4th goals, it's not.

Sorry Bob, I'm weird about sh*te like that (see my rant about "volley" in Bentley thread).  Think it's my Star Sign allegedly.

We have hat tricks over here as well in hockey, and people all throw their hats on the ice if someone scores one (not necessarily all on a row though FW)
