Paul the German Octopus Picks Spain to Win World Cup

My friend Kelly's Facebook status this morning says something about the German octopus that has predicted Spain to win the World Cup.  I had no idea what she was talking about, so I googled it.  Apparently, they have an octopus that predicts which teams win sporting events.  The keeper puts in two crates of mussels, each with the differing flags attached, and whichever one the octopus picks is the one that is predicted to win.  So far, the octopus is predicting with 100% accuracy during the World Cup.  


Personally, I'm hoping he gets it wrong today.

Go Germany!!!

Don't believe the Octopus, he is German after all and is playing mind games with the Spanish!! A German win would be the perfect excuse for a beer festival. "Alles fuer Deutschland"
