  1. I like the paralympic mascots, very different. The Olympic mascots reminds me of the Salt lake mascots (Bear, fox & rabbit). The Polare bear looks like an albino version of Moscow's Olympic mascot, Misha.

  3. 1st anniversary of the 2010 Winter Olympic games.

  8. Anyway I end up buying one of the toy. It comes in the white or red jersey. I used my team Canada jersey as a background.
  9. With the snow, it looks more like the fortress of solitude from Superman. Superman lives here ("Passion lives here" Torino)

  14. The cauldron will be re-lit again this Thursady for Remembrance day 8:30AM-12:30PM. Is not even a year yet, but the cauldron has been re-lit many times already.
  15. Watch as they test how the roof closes & open. http://watch.discoverychannel.ca/#clip371234
