Delia Smith encourages the crowd

The BBC reports:

Delia Smith has described her half-time outburst at a Norwich City home game on Monday as "an act of desperation".

The former TV chef and Norwich City director got on the pitch and urged supporters to show more support, sparking criticism on the club website.

Lord Bonkers writes:

In the early 1960s Fanny Craddock, famous for her cookery upon the moving television, purchased a controlling interest in Featherstone Rovers Rugby League Club and attended every home game.

If she felt the team's supporters were not showing sufficient enthusiasm she would wade into their midst and set about her with a ladle, knocking many a cloth cap to the ground in the process.

Strange the things that one remembers.
