Lanesra: Arsenal fan tricks wife, names daughter after the club

Listen to article

Sometimes, one's unbridled love of the game can be a little excessive.

Exhibit A: One devoted Arsenal supporter took his love for the Gunners to new heights when he christened his daughter after the club - without his wife realizing it for two years!

Clare Smith, the unsuspecting mother, ungrudgingly gave the nod to name her daughter 'Lanesra' thinking it was a 'unique and romantic' name. Um, that's actually 'Arsenal' spelled backwards, Mrs. Smith.

Well played Sir. — Coral (@Coral) 2013-07-22 14:22:09.0
