Vancouver 2010 Olympic Mascots

As we say goodbye to yet another amazing, emotionally-charged Olympic Games this weekend, I think it’s only proper to pay tribute to what were probably the coolest Olympic Mascots of all time. That’s right, amigos, I’m talking about Quatchi, Sumi, Miga, and their adorable little sidekick, Mukmuk!

As luck would have it, my brother Ryan was in Whistler this time last year and managed to score Greta a boxed set with all four of those plush beauties in it. And while those groovy Nagano Snowlet Owls were cool, and the Beijing Mascots kicked butt, I gotta hand it to Vancouver for including a freaking cute-ass Sasqautch in their bunch. Grrr…Yeti like!

Now, let’s see London try and top these guys in 2012!

    Sweet!
    Love the mascots.

  2. How did I miss this post? I guess I was distracted by, oh I don’t know, BEING at the Olympics? :) hehe

    Anyway, I enjoyed this blog post. Reminded me of my blog post about them.

  3. Grrr…thanks for rubbing it in, dude. I’m still so jealous that you actually attended the Olympics. Wow…
