Geller gets vibes going for England game
LONDON (Reuters) – Spoonbender Uri Geller is planning to send positive vibes over the airwaves to the England soccer team to boost them on the eve of their World Cup match against fancied Argentina.
The world-famous psychic will be broadcasting a last-minute prayer session on Cyprus’s Radio Napa, a domestic radio station at a clubbing resort particularly favoured by young Britons.
He hopes the signals will wing their way across the Middle East and Asia to inspire the squad 30 minutes before kickoff at 1130 GMT on Friday.
“Listeners are supposed to touch the radio as Uri talks and say ‘Win, England win’ and channel all that positive energy to Japan,” Napa presenter Nathan Morley told Reuters.
Geller, an Israeli famed for bending spoons apparently by willpower alone, said on Thursday that all people were connected by “an invisible spiritual thread”.
“I am being interviewed all the time by newspapers, radio stations and television asking me to unite England, to send positive vibrations to the English team, because the 1-1 draw (against Sweden) was not satisfactory,” he told Reuters.
England need all the help they can get. Argentina are among the favourites to lift the World Cup and have proved England’s undoing more than once.
At the last World Cup in France in 1998, David Beckham was sent off for kicking Diego Simeone and England were beaten in a penalty shoot-out.

“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.”
