Oracle octopus opts...
Wonderful stuff. Regarding the predicted result for the World Cup final: cephalopod celebrity pulpo Paul has opted for Spain! Links: in Spanish: El Mundo; in English: Daily Telegraph.
A bit of fun: a friend just passed me an image of the named shirt of a new Dutch player (I hope the Spanish aren't getting too cocky!): Van Aperdeer (van a perder, "going to lose"...hehehe). I'm just pleased that - whoever wins - there will be a new name on the World Cup and will make a new total of eight countries that have won it.
And another bad omen for the Dutch: as Paul (no, not that one!) writes HERE. English ref Howard Webb and his team will officiate at the final and the bad omen is that "...the last time and Englishman got the big gig was Jack Taylor back in 1974 and we all remember what happened then."
