Paul the Octopus died on Tuesday. He was the famous…World Cup-predicting… Paul the Octopus. Paul gained global fame by calling all seven of Germany’s World Cup games.  He even got Spain’s victory over the Netherlands right this summer.  He was a superstar, even getting an agent.

The old Paul will not be forgotten.  He will be cremated, and an urn with his ashes will be on display at the Sea Life aquarium.  Paul was 2 1/2 years old.

Now there’s a new Paul.  He is French, and will soon be calling a tank in Oberhausen, Germany home. The new Paul will get introduced to soccer fans next week.
