R.I.P. Paul the Octopus, Your Predictions Will be Missed

  • By MyAlterEgo on

  • Back in July, many of you World Cup fans may remember a certain octopus predicting Spain as this years winners. In case you forgot, or missed it, check this article out.

    Paul gained popularity very quickly -- Why wouldn't he? He can predict the outcome of sporting events for crying out loud -- and he is still beloved by many outside of the World Cup.

    Unfortunately, our tentacled friend has passed away, and has moved on to a much better place (octopussy heaven?). They are saying that he went peacefully in his tank, and there was no foul play at hand.

    Yahoo had this to say:
    Paul had reached octopus old age of 2 1/2 years and died in his tank on Tuesday morning in an aquarium in the western German city of Oberhausen, spokeswoman Ariane Vieregge said.

    Paul seemed to be in good shape when he was checked late Monday, but he did not make it through the night. He died of natural causes, Vieregge added.
    My best wishes go out to all of Paul's cephalopod relatives. His genius and charisma will be sorely missed. I told myself I was not going to cry.....I am going to pore one out for the homies.

    Paul the octopus was such a legend. It's a shame that he never knew his own fame.

    He was probably not used to all the televised attention. It probably didn't help with the big crowds either.
