You're bitching about how ugly their guitars are? Forget the fact that they were horrible. Nice

Closing ceremonies were really lame. The ones who didn't lip synch sounded awful. And what was with all the silly comedy? Are we still so insecure that we have to base our segments around what our friends to the south think of us? This was broadcast worldwide and we blew it. Time to grow up.

I couldn't agree more. Extremely lame. What an awful spectacle most of it was.

You should have, Gurk. You're the future. You could be one of our saviours and show the world that we're more than beer, poutine and - I kid you not - sex in canoes.

Yeah, brutal. I mean all the mounties, they erecting up the bears, beavers, lumberjacks, canoes, hockey players....all that was missing was a big roll up the rim Timmy's cup with Ann Murray popping out of it.

Holy Fuck! I just came back from downtown right now and my ears are ringing and I've lost my voice! Biggest lifetime experience ever! It felt like everyone was family with all the high fives and dancing going on.

Well that was a fun few weeks. Like really, really fun.

I actually don't know what i'm going to do in my free time now. Boo post-Olympic depression.

Looking forward to London in two years.

i had to PVR the closing ceremonies so i'll be watching them tonight. I'm expecting the worst based on the reviews so far. lol.

fancylad's top 5 monemts:

5. Rochette bronze. actually figure skating in general. I became a true fan of the sport thanks to these olympics (and i'm not ashamed to admit it!) Still feel bad for the robbery that was Plushenko's gold.

4. John Montgomery skeleton. This was awesome. Sliding sports are awesome.

3. Hamelin 500/Team Relay in short track (i know they're 2 different events, but they both involved Charles and they kind of blended into one for me).

2. Canada become ultimate world champions in hockey.

1. Alexandre Bilodeau moguls gold. Had the feel good family story, and got the party started.
