    Celery question



    I was describing the past season's celery antics to some people on another board (not football related).

    The question came up as to the origin of the ritual. According to http://awesternheart.blogspot.com/20...incorrect.html it was Chelsea fans in the early 80s and the song is an old Chas and Dave song (with obvious lyric changes).

    I thought it started at Rugby games more recently.

    Can you set me straight - I figured Dave or Paul may know since they are 'seasoned' and can remember the 80s :)

    Re: Celery question

    I was led to believe that it was started at Chelsea FC - not sure when, may be the 80's. I am not a fan of Chas & Dave so I do not know from which song it was taken.

    I first saw Celery tossing / heard the song in 1992/3 (Hull KR at Castleford). A small group of Hull KR fans kept it going until today.

    The first Baltimore sighting was the KC game '03.:D
