Octopus oracle Paul to retire

Paul the Octopus, the tentacled tipster who fascinated football fans by predicting results at the World Cup, died Tuesday. Paul had reached the octopus old age of 2½ years and died in his tank on Tuesday morning at the Sea Life aquarium in the western German city of Oberhausen. Paul correctly tipped the outcome of all seven of Germany's games. He made his predictions by opening the lid of one of two clear plastic boxes, each containing a mussel and bearing a team flag.
