Since I was gone, Google has been changing their logo daily as usual. And these are the logos that have been appearing from August 17 – August 23:
Google Special: Beijing Olympics Day 9
August 17 2008: Rat vs Dog in kayaking
Google Special: Beijing Olympics Day 10
August 18 2008: Dragon playing table-tennis (ping-pong), probably suggesting China dominating the table-tennis events
Google Special: Beijing Olympics Day 11
August 19 2008: Mr Snake swimming in the water cube
Google Special: Beijing Olympics Day 12
August 20 2008: Horse beating Rabbit (or is it the other way round?) in a running event
Google Special: Beijing Olympics Day 13
August 21 2008: Mr Bunny high jumping
Google Special: Beijing Olympics Day 14
August 22 2008: Monkey vs Tiger in Taekwondo
Google Special: Beijing Olympics Day 15
August 23 2008: Chicken in baseball
So if each animal represents a country, and each picture represents them winning that particular event, the scoreboard would be as follows:
- First Place (3 appearances): Rat & Rabbit
- Second Place (2 appearances): Tiger, Snake, Horse & Monkey
- Third Place (1 appearance): Ox, Dragon, Sheep, Dog & Pig
We have a two way tie for first place. 😄 Hehe!
Don’t forget to catch the closing ceremony tonight!
Special shoutout to Selvie for helping me to save these images!!
