Winter Olympics Start Tonight :o)

The mascots for the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games were introduced on November 27, 2007.  An anime-inspired caricature of traditional First Nations creatures, the mascots include:

Miga - A mythical sea bear, part orca and part kermode bear.

Quatchi - A sasquatch. He comes from the mysterious forests of Canada and dreams of being a hockey goalie.

Sumi - An animal guardian spirit with the wings of the Thunderbird and legs of a black bear who wears a hat of an orca whale. He lives in the mountains of British Columbia.

Mukmuk - A Vancouver Island marmot described as "small and friendly", Mukmuk is not an official mascot but acts as their sidekick.

Miga and Quatchi are mascots for the Olympic Games, while Sumi is the mascot for the Paralympic Games.

My favorite is Quatchi, he is just so darn cute :o)
