Winston BiscuitThe Enfield Royal71Winston Biscuit Scoring a hat-trick seems to get way more praise and excitement than 1 more goal than scoring 2 goals. The hat-trick itself seems to be what's celebrated, instead, or maybe on top of, the actual 3 goals. It seems off.
I hope I am making sense here.
I feel like because it has a little name attached to it there is additional hype around it, like it's a personally trophy that player has won. If the phrase 'hat-trick' didn't exist and instead it was just called 'scoring 3 goals' I don't believe we would see the week of over the top hype the 3 goal scoring player gets currently.
The reaction to a hat-trick feels like an additional prize has been secured on top of scoring 3 goals.
The experience leaves me cold sometimes.
Although, notwithstanding this weekend, scoring 3 in a game is still ‘relatively’ rare.
I think that’s why so much is made of it.
