Did you know
On this date in 1966 England won the Football World Cup beating West Germany 4 - 2 at Wembley. Managed by former Ipswich Town manager Sir Alf Ramsey, this was England's first (and only) win since the tournament began in 1930. England forward Geoff Hurst became the first man to score a hat-trick in a World Cup final.

Joke of the day:
A man takes his seat at the World Cup final. He looks over and notices there's an extra seat in between himself and the next guy.

The man says, "Who would ever miss the World Cup final?”

The guy replies, "Well that was my wife’s seat. We have been to the last five World Cup finals together, but sadly she passed away.”

The man says back, "That’s terrible, but couldn’t you get another close family member to come with you?”

The guy says, "No. They're all at the funeral."
