Spain Advances To Finals

For the nth time already…

Viva España!! Viva España!! Viva España!!

‘Twas a boring first half, balanced by a very, very exciting second half, indeed! Spain’s patience has paid off.

It seems that octopus was right!

The 32-year-old defender, Puyol, was Spain’s talisman. He was all over the pitch, ready to score and ready to defend. Maybe Paul the Octopus had visions of Puyol’s bouncing curls, mistaking them for cephalopod appendages and that’s why he made his prophetic choice.  (NPR, July 7, 2010)
