A few seconds ago Spain won the World Cup. To those who don't give a shit about football, an octopus correctly predicted the outcome of a few matches in the World Cup, including this last one.

So, what are your thoughts about this? Are you with me in the "FOR FUCKS SAKE GODDAMNIT WHY THE FUCK COULDN'T NETHERLANDS WIN!" crowd, the "HOLY FUCKING SHIT SPAIN WON WOHOHO LET'S GET WASTED!" or the "HOLY FUCKING SHIT THAT OCTOPUS WAS RIGHT LET'S KILL IT AND DISECT IT!"

EDIT: I guess I should put my opinion about the game. To be honest, the game was intense. I was cheering for Netherlands the whole way through but my dreams were shattered by Iniesta, that bastard.

Don't see the discussion value. Also, your options don't seem to cover very many people's reactions.

It could have been coincidence, or maybe it's just Octopus's are Fortune Tellers. We need to try all octopus's before you know, we jump to any conclusions.

That match was disgusting, that goal should never have been since the spain player was offside on the first pass to him, it doesn't matter if it rebounded off the holland player before reaching him it was still offside.

And some of those calls the referee was (and was not) making were ridiculous.

We can't kill it, we must make it offerings of fish and assorted shellfish to please it...

Pretty much my thoughts. It could easily be argued that the corner that never was cost the Netherlands - ridiculous decision from a referee that had done very well until that point. At the end of the day it was still Netherlands own fault for conceding such a poor goal.

That's not how the rule works; the goal, correctly, stood.

Spain did spend a lot of time on the floor. I'm not bothered though, I'm more concerned about the magical octopus than the game itself.

1. It's Soccer, not football.

2. Soccer is 60% diving. To participate in a soccer team you need a Bachelor's in Theater.

3. The other 40% of the game is divided between passing the ball, kicking at nowhere in particular and doing the airplane.

I wanted the Netherlands to win. Oh, well, can't have everything you want, I suppose.

I'm with the "Oh, Spain won. Cool I guess" crowd. I was routing for Germany.
