Remember how the Sochi Opening Ceremonies featured a gigantic, stoned bear who didn't make it to the NBC telecast? Anyway, we haven't seen much of him here in America, but he's been at the Olympics, going around, looking stoned, and being Olympic. His name is Bely Mishka.

And because it's a mascot head, he's always smiling, even as he struggles.
