And So The Games Come To An End

Last night I watched the closing ceremonies of the Olympics.  Of course it was pretty good but not as good as the opening ceremonies I think.  
 
Congratulations to all Gold, Silver and Bronze winners from all countries.  Though, really, all that attended should deserve a congrats.  Because if you even made it to the Olympics then you are no slouch.  Good game everyone.
