It's actually a tough job coming up with a mascot for this type of thing.  You have to somehow create something that won't bunch anyone's panties the world over, so you end up with something so nebulous that it's basically just some cartoonish blob.

Like when this happened several years ago when these games were first announced?

Is it made in Chine like the Uniform? Or is it France? Regardless i think it is perfectly fitting as a symbol of the United States. Afterall, this and previous administration has made it near impossible for anything to be made in the US. Why would we buy our uniforms in the US when we cant even get a US made refrigerator?

It was designed in the US and made elsewhere. I really don't have an issue with that. I'm sorry that you're so susceptible to populist rhetoric.

I'm reading that when the UK won the games 7 years ago they projected costs of 2.4 billion pounds, and it ended up being 9.3 ($14.4 billion). Of course that projection was pre-recession and now, just today, it was announced that the UK is officially in a double tip recession. (compare that with the US spending $1.3 billion for the 2002 games)

I saw a good show on History's Modern Marvels about the engineering that went into recovering the toxic, industrial wasteland that was previously in the place and it was very interesting. These are the first games that are considered using "sustainable" technologies.

With all the hot flesh and athletic brilliance on display, does anyone ever notice the mascots?  They should retire that idea already.

Took a tour of the useless ruins of Athens and already Beijing. I hope London spent those billions on something that really will be reused. 

The competition is cool but so much of the Olympics is a plundering and sometimes its the average joes who are paying the bills long long after the billions have gone into developers pockets. The IOC is in Lausanne Switzerland and is NOT a beloved institution.  Everyone here sees right the greed, graft, and folie de grandeur.

The whole shebang must be reimagined and sustainability strictly enforced. Athens waste was scandalous.

I'm bringing a small piece of Jasper Hills Conundrum (bloomy rind cheese) to room temperature as we speak, with a side of jamůn serrano 8) I may pair this with a a red from Catalonia though I'm not in a drinking mood so might skip that part. Hate to drink alone.
