World Cup Update: Paul the Octopus is now six for six. Having predicted German victories over England and Argentina, the clarivoyant cephalopod correctly selected Spain as the winner of today’s semifinal match. Congratulations to Paul for finally making the right choice.

That being said, I’m kind of dissapointed that we’re not having The War of the Guays (Para and Ura) in the World Cup Final. But as they say, you go Uruguay and I’ll go mine. (I’ve been waiting for years to use that line). But fortunately, as we learn from Ryan Wilson at

Despite Paraguay Loss, Larissa Riquelme Will Still Run Naked Through Streets

Paraguay made it all the way to the quarterfinals of the 2010 World Cup before losing to tournament favorite Spain, 1-0. Not a surprising outcome...but upsetting nonetheless, particularly for those individuals who were looking forward to lingerie model Larissa Riquelme's naked romp through the streets if Paraguay had won the whole thing.

All is not lost, it turns out.

According to "Riquelme has confirmed she'll go ahead with her promise - even though her countrymen fell a couple of wins short of the target she'd set them."
"It will be a present to all of the players, and for all the people in Paraguay to enjoy,' she said. "They tried as hard as possible and gave it their all on the field." That's called taking pride in your country.

In related news, Diego Maradona will be forced to run through the streets naked as punishment for Argentina's no-show effort against Germany in the quarterfinals.

(And from my own visits to Buenos Aires, I know that the Avenida 9 de Julio is one big street.)
