City casts spell over Uri’s son
April 7th 1997

LOWLY Exeter City has made it into the pages of celebrity gossip magazine OK!
A few pages on from the latest issue’s scoop spread on the new baby born to Michael Jackson and his wife, a city shirt stares out from a feature on spoonbending psychic Uri Geller.
It is proudly worn by Uri’s son, Daniel, who was with his family at the St James’s Park clash with Torquay United on Saturday.
They travelled down from the mansion at Thameside, which looks so opulent in the magazine photographs.
OK made no mention of Daniel’s love affair with the Grecians, but the Echo can reveal he fell in love with the team last summer.
“It’s very strange, but there is no real explanation why I support them,” he told the Echo while en route to St James’ Park.
“My dad thinks it might be because I lived a previous life in Exeter.
“It happened all of a sudden, when I saw their name on television.
“It made a really big connection and I have been hooked ever since.”
The Grecians’ status at the wrong end of Nationwide Division Three doesn’t put Daniel off. He has no time for top
teams like Manchester United and Liverpool.
He said: “I just feel at home with Exeter City. The fans and club always make us really welcome.”
The rest of the Geller family support Reading and Daniel’s football shirt is rarely recognised as he parades it round that town.
“I usually have to explain to people to people what team it is, ” he said.
“When Exeter are playing I drape the shirt over our crystal ball and it seems to help.”
SPELLBOUND: Uri’s son Daniel, proudly wears his city shirt in the latest edition of OK! magazine. Daniel, 15, is pictured with his mother and father Uri and Hannah, and his 14-year-old sister Natalie.

“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”

“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
“Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae’s in bloom”
