It’s Like I Have ESPN or Something…

You may have heard of Paul the Octopus.  For some reason, the people of Germany decided it would be a great idea to have an octopus predict who would win World Cup games.  Amazingly enough, this octopus correctly picked the winner of all 8 of Germany’s games.  Paul decided it would be a good time to retire while he was still undefeated.  Since this octopus was so successful, the idea has caught on.

As we all know, Brett Favre has retired & come out of retirement & done it all over again numerous times.  So the great people of Minnesota took a page out of the German book & got a psychic octopus of their own.  The Minnesota aquarium looked to an octopus named Loki to predict whether or not Favre would retire.  Unfortunately this octopus couldn’t make up it’s mind.  At first Loki said Favre would be retiring but a few minutes later she changed her mind & decided he would be coming back.  Sounds familiar doesn’t it?
