Okay, so the octopus says Spain's going to win. And, well, since he hasn't been wrong yet, we might as well trust him, right?? It seems there is an octopus somewhere in Germany that has predicted all the world cups games correctly. The news here in Spain is taking this guy pretty seriously, so why should I, right? Well, I should probably mention that there is also a parakeet somewhere that predicted the Holland would win over Spain. But, really, what does a parakeet know about soccer! I'll go with Octopus Paul.
There is also a big controversy over whether the president, Zapatero, should go the the final game. It seems he is "gafe" (which means bad luck) and no one wants him to go. The Queen, however, is a different story. They love her and she is such a great lady. She dresses in red and wears a yellow and red scarf and goes to many of the big sporting events. She was there for Nadal at the French Open and Wimbledon, and was at the semifinal game on Wednesday. After the game she went down to the locker room to congratulate the team and caught Puyol, who scored the only goal, in his towel. Now, of course many will say, what did she expect in a men's locker room, but really, she was just so happy for them that they had won, it was a great moment.
Okay, well the weekend is upon us. We will hopefully do something worth blogging about. Definitely expect some stuff after Sunday's final. Aupa España!!!!!!!!!!!
