Hi Jeff,

This site should answer that question http://ask.yahoo.com/ask/20010823.html

Seems it does have something to do with hats after all! Perhaps a creative magician can come up with an effect with that same name. :O)

Hi

Originates from cricket:-

Getting three batters "out" in three successive pitches...so called because in the 17th century, a pitcher/bowler who accomplished the feat was rewarded by an immediate bonus, collected by passing a hat among gathered spectators.

Over time it changed to include other sports.


HTH

In Hockey (a game that used to be played in North America), a hat trick refers to a player when he has scored 3 goals in the same game.

Don't forget College Hockey, The Wisconsin Badgers take on Alaska Anchorage in some exciting WCHA action tonight at 7pm. College hockey can be very exciting.
