Meet Wenlock

After Beijing's Pikachu type mascots, I was curious to see what London would pick. I wasn't expecting a cartoon cyclops. Meet Wenlock.

Wenlock is intended to "connect young people with the power of the Games" and "inspire them to choose sport." I imagine at the very least Wenlock will inspire children to run away in fear while Wenlock records them.

London Olympics

I'm in London for the 2012 Olympics and opening ceremonies are tonight! I could not be more excited. I feel for London. Beijing is a hard act to follow. After all, China had:

                                              Creepy prancing sex offender mascots

                                  A jumbotron that regularly suggested we all do the "Mexican wave"

                                                            Fabulous photo ops

                                            And cheerleaders whose uniforms said "BJAY"

Like I said, hard act to follow. I can't wait to see what London has in store for us!
