Bend It Like Geller: Famous Psychic Turns His Powers to a Soccer Team

FALKIRK, Scotland—The players from the seaside town of North Berwick were up against it in the clash against local favorites Mill AFC. Win and they could go top of their local amateur soccer league here in Scotland. But Mill were tough opponents, quick to get in North Berwick’s faces.

Several years ago, he bought a small rocky island lying off the town’s coast called the Lamb. The place is uninhabited, a wildlife reserve no larger than a soccer field and home to colonies of puffins, guillemots and other seabirds.

He paid £30,000 for it when it came up for sale, though excavations are prohibited.Read More
