The Life of Shinke

Paul the Octopus

Paul the Octopus

By now everyone has heard about Paul, the German’s game predicting octopus.

And if you haven’t, well which rock have you been living under?

Paul, an octopus born in England but residing in Germany, has great love for the most beautiful game in the world…football, or for you Americans, soccer.

He specializes in predicting games that the Germans are playing but is not the least bit biased as he picked Serbia and Spain to win their games against Germany.

Understandably, the Germans weren’t too happy about this and threatening to make a meal out of him.

With his seven game streak the organizers of this little shindig have asked Paul to predict a game the Germans are not participating in, the World Cup finals.

Always willing to please, Paul obliged and has named Spain the victors of the World Cup, which would be their first ever.

And as you can imagine Spain is dying to adopt their precious El Pulpo Paul.

Will he be right or will his nemesis Mani the parrot take his crown?

We’ll just have to wait and see.

Remember in the game of football anything can happen, the ball is round after all. 🙂
