Cutest Mascot Ever: Zakumi

Meet the official mascot of 2010’s FIFA World Cup: Zakumi the leopard. Global sporting events are notorious for their hideous and confusing mascots (remember Izzy from the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta?), so I was shocked to see this tastefully contemporary and all-around awesome character design on the official website of the upcoming World Cup. If you’re not psyched for 2010 yet, you should be. The games will be taking place in South Africa this year, so I’m hoping the African teams bring their A game and maybe bring home the win (I think Europe and South America have enough for the moment). Then again, it’d be pretty sweet to see the USA give everyone a run for their money as well. Likely, I know, but hey – it could happen!
