When you think of the 2010 World Cup, only one name comes to mind: 'Paul the Octopus.' Yep, the octopus who predicted the outcome of all seven of Germany's games, plus the Spain-Netherlands final. I'm sure you know Paul died a few months after the tournament. But even though he's gone, he's not forgotten. Germany has erected a statue in Paul's honour, which contains his ashes.
I know people sometimes give soccer a hard time. But soccer fans treat their deceased octopi with a lot more dignity than hockey fans.
