As the World Cup comes to an end I have a confession:  I don't know the fist thing about the event, the sport, or who's taking part in the festivities.  I'm not a sports fan so events like this that have (seemingly) everyone cheering and yelling always leave me wondering what the hype is all about.

But I did stumble across something World Cup-related  that did peak my curiosity;  The trophy (or trophies - as it would be) for the World Cup has a sorted-history that involves theft, replicas, the Nazis, and deception.

This article outlines the whole history about the World Cup trophy and makes for an interesting read.
