Paul the Psychic Octopus: I Told You So…
If only Paul, the Psychic Octopus can verbalize his thoughts I am sure he is saying, “I told you so.”
Well, I am not a psychic and certainly not an octopus, but I also told you so. I even went as far as to tell you to bet your bottom dollar on Paul’s pick for the World Cup finals between Spain and the Netherlands, if you are into that sort of thing… betting that is.
True enough Spain emerged as the winner, even if it took two extensions and a lot of “physical” plays to do so. The important thing is the World Cup is now theirs, their very first ever in the World Cup’s history.
So what is next for Paul, the Psychic Octopus? I hope he will still be around for the next World Cup. If he can predict other sports’ outcomes then I am sure we will hear more about him in the future.Follow us on Twitter to get free up-to-date news via tweets from the World Correspondents, or you can subscribe to us by entering your e-mail below.
