Paul the Octopus now honored with memorial
The kids loved Paul. So did the gamblers. His legion of fans had requested a memorial and now the Sea Life aquarium where he lived, frolicked and died in Oberhausen, Germany, has one. The 6 1/2-foot tall memorial is made of plastic (not bronze? marble?) and -- here's where it gets a little weird -- inside is a gold-leaf covered urn containing Paul's cremated remains.
