Hello Quatchi!

I'm not big on the Winter Olympics, unless Tonya Harding or Chazz Michael Michaels are involved. However, the 2010 games in Vancouver just unveiled its Meomi-designed mascots: Miga (a sort of orca-bear), Sumi (a thunderbird) and Quatchi (Bigfoot!).

Technically Quatchi's a Sasquatch, the Native American/First Nations term for Bigfoot, though the name "Squatch" was already taken. In any case, Quatchi is yet another reason to love Vancouver. Here's video.

Obviously I like him better than that stupid panda below.

Quatchi is the cutest thing ever! I love it that the sign behind him says "Stanley Park."
