I went down to The Vancouver Art Gallery today for the MukMuk rally (more on that next) but was terribly distracted by some guys in red shirts bouncing on a trampoline. Someone said they were the Olympic trampoline team, but I didn’t see anything identifying them officially. But who cares? They were awesome. Here’s some more trampolining shots…
These guys were fearless and upside down a lot.
And my favourite shot because, well, look and see:
Meanwhile, the whole reason for my visit to this location was for the MukMuk Rally. If you’re not sure what a MukMuk is, he’s a little mascot “side-kick” and this is what he looks like.
He’s a little marmot and an official character created for the Olympics. The rally today was to promote MukMuk as an official mascot and not just a side kick. True story. I know. But it was all in good fun, so I went.
Here are all the people supporting the MukMuk cause.
And, Marmots have feelings, too, you know.
Well, I hope this helped MukMuk feel appreciated and supported. Sadly, a guy dressed in a MukMuk costume did not show up. AW. I was hoping to get a handshake.
A few more photos here if you like the trampoline and marmot mascot types.
