"...First created for the ’66 cup in England, World Cup mascots are suppose to symbolize the host country. In reality, they do a terrible job while looking ridiculous."
Check out the 10 dumbest World Cup mascots here. I actually don't agree with all of the list. OK, I do. Germany's giant muppet Lion with the talking soccer ball takes the cake. But the USA World Cup pup in '94 wasn't all that bad was it? And this little cheetah dude with green spikey hair is both cute and gnarly, no? I mean...perhaps a few kinks and curls would be more acurate, but overall....they are ALL ten times better than what London is doing to the Olympics in 2012.
