Gotta Catch ’em All!

Pictured above are the 3 mascots for the 2010 Olympic games taking place in Vancouver. 

“Quatchi is a young sasquatch with a long brown beard and blue earmuffs, while Miga is a snowboarding sea-bear — part killer whale and part kermode bear.

And Sumi is a spirit animal that flies with the wings of a native thunderbird.” 

Makes sense.  I can’t help but wonder if the design of these little woodland critters was somehow influenced by either the proximity of Vancouver to Japan, or by the large amounts of good cannibus I hear is available in the area.  Either way, we’ll be seeing a lot of them in the coming years here in Canada so we’d better get used to Quatchi and the gang.

At least this is better than this random thing our neighbours to the south had for the 1996 games:

  1. Miga is such a babe. You think the samsquanch is hitting that?
