Interesting People - World Cup Fact - Jules Rimet

The original World Cup was called the Jules Rimet Trophy.

(It was originally known as the World Cup or Coupe du Monde, but in 1946 it was renamed after the FIFA president who set up the first tournament, Jules Rimet. In 1970, Brazil's third victory in the tournament entitled them to keep the trophy permanently. However, it was stolen in 1983, and has never been recovered, apparently melted down by the thieves.

 Do you think they posted it in an envelope to Cash My Gold?)
