Yes, I’ve been MIA for a few days, taking care of the absolute awesomest, cutest, most troublesome baby ever! She also has the best stuffed animals, which only made it that much better- look at this bunny!!!
So today I tried to find a mascot that was equally as cute, but let’s face it… that’s not possible. But the elephant I chose is pretty great anyway, and shouldn’t be compared to something so perfect.
Stumpy was the mascot for the 2011 cricket world cup in South Asia. Born in Sri Lanka, he is said to be 10 years old during the event, and chosen due to his fun, energetic, enthusiastic, and upbeat personality.
By the way, he’s got mad skills on the field:
I guess he has delicate knees and shins. Safety, children!
One of the coolest things about Stumpy is the statue they made and decorated to look as traditional and realistic as possible.
Once again, cricket is way cooler than I even expected. Good work, international sports!
