The Coveted “Red Mittens”
This image was taken by Scott Halleran, our photographer capturing the US athletes at the NBC Today Show Portrait Studio. When he’s not up at Grouse Mountain at 4:00 am, he’s out scouting for the coveted souvenirs of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games — the “Red Mittens.” He took orders for all of us inside the Getty Images MPC office and ventured off to the local department store to fight off the crowds and frenzied fans. In all, he purchased about 75 pairs of these fuzzy handwarmers for us to share with family and friends. Needless to say, Scott is officially done with the mitten business.
