Uri knows the score!

Express & Echo
SPOONbending Uri Geller helped Exeter City to victory against Premiership club Chelsea by predicting a 2-1 score.
He turned out to be a lucky talisman for the home team when they played Ruud Gullit’s star-studded side on Monday night.
Uri, whose young son Daniel is a Grecians fanatic, wrote to chairman of directors Ivor Doble to ask if they could both come to the big game.
“When he predicted we were going to win 21 I didn’t believe him,” said Mr Doble. “I told Uri I’d be quite happy with a draw.”
“I never dreamed we would have the chance to beat a top side like Chelsea.”
Uri confirmed his prophecy by faxing a copy of the prediction he made before the match to Mr Doble on Tuesday.
The club supremo added: “Uri certainly helped us win through his sheer confidence that we would do it. Every time we got the ball he would put his head in his hands and concentrate.”

“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.”
