Meet the two new most famous British Blobs: Wenlock and Mandeville. These are your official mascots for the 2012 London Olympics. Wenlock is the mascot for the Olympics and is obviously named after the Shropshire town of Much Wenlock where, in the mid-19th century, the Wenlock Games became the inspiration for the modern Olympic movement. Mandeville is the Paralympics mascot and derived its name from Stoke Mandeville, in Buckinghamshire, home to Stoke Mandeville Hospital. I think these blob-like creatures look like a cross between Gumby and a Cyclops.
The Final Three performed last night and all seemed worthy (to be in the Top 3). I hope the Final Two will either be Crystal/Casey or Crystal/Lee. It seemed like Lee was over-rated and praised by the Judges. A Crystal/Casey finale would be wonderful. Crystal is always so good. After she sings a song, I usually want to hear it again. Casey is good enough, as long as he sings songs suited for his voice. Lee seems quite raspy and a bit yelly lately and is starting to remind me of Joe Cocker. I hope Lee goes home, leaving a Crystal/Casey Finale.
