Olympic Friendlies- 12.20.05

beijing_olympic_mascots.gif Mascots for sporting events have always struck me as a little weird. In the U.S., they’re usually aggressive, in your face, and “extreme.” I’ve noticed that mascots for international sporting events are more welcoming and friendly, and sometimes a little abstract. The ones for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games take it to another level. They’re cute and cuddly! I’m not sure how I feel about them being so darn cute, but I am totally loving the mascot for Shooting.
