Turns out humans aren’t the only ones who are interested in whether QB Brett Favre retires or returns to the Minnesota Vikings to play a 20th NFL season.
Loki the Octopus, who lives at Minnesota’s Mall of America, has predicted Favre will retire, myFOXtwincities.com reported.
Loki, who lives in an aquarium at the mega-mall (as opposed to say Foot Locker), reached his conclusion by the most scientific of means — picking between two types of food. Loki’s menu choices were cleverly hidden behind photos of Favre celebrating in a Vikings uniform and Favre’s face with a red line through it. He chose the latter.
Loki declined comment through a spokesperson, but many sports fans swear by the prediction precision of octopi (remember Paul, who correctly picked all of Germany’s World Cup matches?). However, like this entire Favre soap opera, something seems fishy to us.
