Quatchi Loves Hockey!

Well, duh.

Still, here’s some fun Quatchi puck action that hasn’t fit into earlier posts, like when he celebrated Canada’s gold-medal victory…

With his favorite goalie, Olympian/Canuck Roberto Luongo, found here

In his Canucks sweater, found here

This is the first image in another killer flickr set by The Blackbird, Quatchi’s Dream Comes True

Heather Amska sent in this photo way back when, sparking the idea for this post…

Finally, play Quatchi’s Shootout Shutout while you can, ’cause rumors abound that the whole Vancouver2010.com site will disappear come 2011…

I love the game’s never-say-die attitude: even if you don’t make a single save, it still says, “Looks like you’re getting the hang of it.”

UPDATE

I grabbed this rare, non-goalie Quatchi still from Meomi’s Mascots Reel posted in February 2011…

Mascot Down!

“I chased Quatchi down and he ran into a wall and fell over, still not sure if he was faking or not,” says Shaheen.

This game of street hockey got a little rough (found here).

Quatchi’s Back!

…And so are we!

We’ve mostly recovered from our post-Olympics hangover, helped mightily by a few days in sunny San Diego. Quatchi himself is probably taking it easy during these couple weeks before the Paralympic Games, which begin this Friday. As promised, we’ll continue to update Quatchi Watch as long as we continue finding more cool stuff about our favorite goalie.

Quatchi Watch Road Trip, Part 2

Yesterday’s Vancouver visit was a blast! We’ve seen lots of this stuff online already (and blogged about it too), but it was cool to take it all in firsthand and capture it with our own cameras.

A four-story Quatchi on the side of the TD Tower looms over fans eagerly awaiting the Meet the Mascots on Ice show. We took in the 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. performances. Both were crammed with kids screaming at all three mascots, chanting their names, and completely losing their minds. Here’s Quatchi making his big entrance…

Moments later, in his hockey sweater, he makes a big save and brings down the house…

Between shows we had a snack at Beard Papa’s (note Quatchi on the street sign)…

Later we had lunch from Japa Dog

If all that food wasn’t enough, we hit three different McDonald’s™ and scored four different Happy Meal™ toys. We now have all the Quatchi toys, and need just two others to complete the eight-toy collection: Miga Figure Skating and Sumi Alpine Skiing. At one McDonald’s™ was this Quatchi display, so Eliza took a picture of me in it.

Here’s Eliza sporting her Quatchi hat at the cauldron…

And here she is next to a hollow plastic Quatchi, part of a Samsung display in the Pacific Center Centre mall…

We covered lots of downtown, and we saw Quatchi and the other mascots everywhere we looked — on hats, backpacks, buses, etc. It was cool. Eliza will show us a bunch of that shortly.
