    Fells Point can probably expand on this but my understanding is that it originated through fans of British Rugby. As you may know, there are a gazillion rugby songs, mostly bawdy and rude . This particular song has the line "if she don't come, I'll tickle her bum with a stick of celery."

    Apparently while singing this in the stands of your local Rugby field, you then proceed to wing the celery at fans of the opposing team.

    The last time Dave was here, we launched a barrage of celery at some hapless Chiefs fan walking bythe tailgate. Hilarious.

    Re: Week 2 Trip.

    I took some friends to Castleford v Hull KR (Rugby League) game some years ago. At half-time a barrage of celery went the 'Cas fans way along with the song - all done in good humour!!

    I believe Chelsea fans are credited with its creation.

    KR fans still sing the celery song - I sang it with them myself at Batley away (my 40th) last Sunday!

    I do however suggest a toned down version for this Raiders game Taigate could be:

    Celery!!! Celery!!!
    The 'Brits are here! We'll drink some beer!
    And throw some CELERY!
    Celery! Celery!

    and so on................

    Celery, Celery
    for if she comes?
    we'll tickle her bum
    with a lump of Celery

    There are different versions of the same song. I meerly suggested a toned down version to avoid getting arrested, or a law suit form some feminists!

    Clearly the point of difference is the 'for if she comes' or 'we'll shave her cum' - both or which, said quickly, sound similar.

    We are more likely to get away with 'for if she?' one!

    The addition of a second verse for the tailgate - 'the Brits are here ...' would work only if people are regular chanters at sports games. Which of course I am, but i am not too sure about everyone else!!!!

    We've got a cuople of days to sort out this one - prior to the tailgate!!!

    Re: Week 2 Trip.

    I've asked this before, but how would you shave that anyway??!

    I say leave the line in there and don't worry about being un-PC - inside every feminist is a party girl just waiting to get out - as Jeremy Piven says in PCU.

    'For if she comes' - is much easier on the un-initiated. Better to have 15 of us singing one song - as we pelt the Raider fan that gets into the cross-hairs!!!

    Re: Week 2 Trip.

    Wasn't excited yet until I realised whilst playing football last night that when I was playing football next wednesday it'd be mere hours before flying to Baltimore!

    Just better make sure I wake up a bit earlier next Thursday than I did today, lol.

    Re: Week 2 Trip.

    Bumping up this old thread up needing wise counsel, to me silly headwear is a must at a sporting event, it's a fez for Saracens games, a white and red jester's hat for Saracens games and anything random if I go anywhere else. Is there suitably silly headwear that I can get my mits on in Baltimore to continue my silly headwear at sporting events tradition? Perhaps a purple and gold jesters hat?

    Somewhere...

    If not I'll bring me chefs hat and you can act like you are cooking the Raiders....

    <- LOL, you Brits just invite the jokes about your dental care. Just kidding, I have green teeth, dontchaknow.

    By the way, Fanatic pimp hat is THE head gear. I have one (without the Ravens brim thing he has) but I can't wear it. He IS the pimp hat man.

    What's dental care? The last time I visited the dentist some eastern european immigrant came at me with a hacksaw.
