World Cup 2010 Finals: Spain vs Netherlands and Paul the Octopus – Who hates Paul The Octopus? Well if you hate this oracle Octopus then I am one with you. I personally hate it when animals are used in publicity stunts and acts like this. The animal’s rights is being abused and fans are being fooled to believe that Paul actually predicts the games.
First and foremost, have you seen the available videos of Paul the Octopus and his predictions. The tank were he usually pick is the one on the right, or the tank nearest to him. Why would that tank be there always and why would Paul pick that? Who sets up the tank?
Now you get my reasoning, the tank is setup by someone else who knows the behavior of Paul the Octopus and who also knows football odds. If there is someone who is noteworthy of being accurate in his predictions is the handler of the Octopus. However, the Octopus gets all the credit.
I also hate the Netherlands vs Spain game predictions since it ruins the game excitement and suspense. The suspense of the game gets stolen by a sea creature and when that chosen team wins the Octopus gets the credit for being the first one to predict. That is so lame!
Then the third reason is the psychological effect of this predictions to the team not being picked. In the Netherlands vs Spain World Cup 2010 finals, Paul the Octopus predicted the demise of the Dutch. Certainly the Dutch would not like that to happen and would always be reminded in their minds by this prediction. The effect their focus and concentration gets destructed.
So when I watch the Netherlands vs Spain live stream later today I will hope and pray that Paul The Octopus is wrong… I certainly want for the creature to fail and hopefully he gets released. Poor creature.
If you hate Paul The Octopus as well then leave a comment below and let us hope that he gets freed soon.
