"Associated Futbal" and Paul the Octopus

Posted by Kitara Julian On 11:10 AM
Yes, we're still breathing, and "above soil", as my paternal grandfather used to say. Since I'm an associated futbal (soccer) affecionado of old, and we're now going into the quarterfinals of the World Cup in South Africa, here are a few lines on the beautiful game.
For those who have been tuned in at the games by now have also been tuned out by the buzzing bees and mosquito music of the Vuvuzelas! No matter, since the games are played in South Africa, where we expected a very colour ful display by the fans.
They did not let me down. 
Masked balls and Mardi Gras costumes permanently on display.  Sensation, drama, joy and disappointment are always present at this global event.
One of the many stories needs to be told (for those of you who don't know already): for this we turn to a 'psychic' who predicts the outcome of the German team's encounters. It's not your everyday crystal-ball predicting Zena or Elvira.  No siree, this one is an inhabitant of the deep seas, straight out of the Beatles "Octopus Garden in the Shade".  
Only this octopus, whose name is Paul, isn't in the shade but in global limelight and media realm.  

Paul predicts the outcome by selecting a mussel from a glass tank from his home in an aquarium.  There are two tanks filled with water, the latest has a flag of Argentina, the other Germany. Thus far, Paul predicted 5 out of 5 games correctly!
Now he is telling us by selecting the mussel from the German tank that Germany will defeat Argentina on Saturday.  Messi or no Messi!  But, it took one hour for Mr. Paul to make up his 3-brained mind before using one of his eight arms to pick up the "Germany-dedicated" mollusk out of the tank.
Happy Trails,
Henri
