RIP Paul ...11:56 PM
So we all knew who the star to WC 2010 was. It wasn't Spain nor The Netherlands. It wasn't Lampard's overuled goal. It wasn't Forlan and his teammates. Nor was it Muller. It wasn't even a human being but rather a marine creature. Paul the Octupus. The German octupus that was threatened to be barbecued by predicting the loss of Germany in the Semi Finals. Amazing run this creature did and in a short period of time. Paul died in his tank in the Oberhausen Centre at the age of 12.
Some trivia about Paul:
- He became an instant hero in Spain, prompting a request to have him put on display at Madrid zoo.
- He was even made an honorary citizen of a Spanish town before being made an ambassador for England's 2018 World Cup bid.
What's funny about this is that the Octopus is having a mermorial service and a lot of people are planning to attend. If you were near the place would you have attended?
