An English businessman was visiting the United States and heard about a Red Indian Memory Man. He decided to try him out and said to him “I realize that you may not be familiar with English sport but do you know who won the 1952 F.A Cup Final?”. The memory man thought for a few minutes and then replied “Newcastle 1-0”. The Englishman was very impressed. Ten years later the Englishman was again visiting the U.S and decided to see if the Red Indian Memory man was still 'in business'. He approached the memory man, raised his own hand palm forward and said “How!”. The memory man replied “A diving header in the 82nd minute”.
