Nika, a polar bear at a Russian zoo, has drawn comparisons to Paul the octopus, the German octopus that predicted Germany's matches at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, by predicting the winners of matches at the Confederations Cup. I feel very comfortable saying this is the first time a polar bear has ever drawn comparisons to an octopus. Here's a video about how Nika goes about doing football punditry:
I know what you're thinking, we're all crazy for putting this much faith in a cow to predict the outcome of something people in Las Vegas often miss. But, Paul The Octopus predicted Germany winning the World Cup in 2014, so I have faith in this cow.
If you think you hate an opposing team more than Brondby fans hate FC Copenhagen, you are wrong. Look what these fools did during the Copenhagen derby.

Animal pitch invasions are some of the most fun things that can happen during soccer matches. Over the years we've seen dogs, cats, a cow, a deer, a snake, a seagull, a duck and a goat.
And now: SHEEP. Welcome to the Welsh Alliance League.
It doesn’t happen often in the world’s top leagues, but once in a while, our furry friends take part in the match. Animal sightings at Premier League, Ligue 1 or Bundesliga games are infrequent, but if we go further down the line of world’s vast array of leagues, we will find places where, more often than not, fans get to see animals invading pitches with more frequency than their human counterparts.
Last week, during a Copa Libertadores match between Zamora (Venezuela) and Gremio (Brazil), a good dog just couldn't contain itself and ran on the field.
There’s been a question on the minds of Americans for almost a week now, a question that has given rise to a national debate: if former NFL Pro Bowl running back Arian Foster engaged in single combat with a wolf, which warrior would emerge victorious?
Have you ever been told you look familiar? Have you ever been mistaken for someone else? Join the club, because it happens to the best of us. It’s common for people to look like a famous celebrity or someone’s long-lost cousin. But have you ever been told you look like an animal? It’s not something you hear often, but it's also not the most ridiculous comparison since we are animals after all! Take a look at 15 footballers that channel something other than human.
