2010 Winter Olympics

well there's been somewhat of a pet-lull as of late. all announced pets have been gathered, oo'ed and ahh'ed over, and now safely reside in my bags. it's been a bit of a dry cycle since the majority of new content's been released.

but with the 2010 winter olympics coming up in the next month, can pet collectors hope to see a new olympic inspired companion? thinks they may have stumbled onto proof of this possibility. it's definitely an exciting prospect! one that i'm crossing my fingers for but...

what type of vanity pet would represent the winter olympics?

the first thing that comes to mind is that this year's olympics will be held in canada. what do i think of when i think of canada? moose, mounties, maple syrup, and hockey. stereotypical, i know, but i can't help it.

so building upon these typical canadian representations, here are my ideas of what the winter olympic pet (if any) may be:
1. a baby moose
2. a murky, except wearing a hocky jersey and carrying around a hockey stick + puck
3. an altered teldrassil sproutling, turning it into a.. maple syrup tree sproutling? i guess it would have a bucket on its head or something.. lol

as for the mounties.. well the best way to represent that in game would obviously be to give us a mount of some sort. GC did mention he would be submitting in a word for an epic type, winter olympic specific mount, but there's no guarantee on it.

personally i'm hoping more for a murky with a hockey jersey, stick and puck. :P
