I...didn't expect a lot of things in that closing ceremony. (Hell yes, Spice Girls! Eric Idle! Nuns on rollerblades!) But it was a lot of fun.

And really, what a good Olympics. In spite of NBC's fail, in spite of some judging issues and cheating scandals, on a whole, such a good Olympics. The phoenix rising above the Olympic flame at the end was such a good touch.

There's just something really beautiful about seeing people come together from all over the world to share a celebration of things they enjoy and, really, a celebration of humanity. There's a reason this is literally the only sporting event I really care about. And this year was really special. So many epic moments, so many amazing athletes from all over the world.

Such a good Olympics. I will miss it on my screen every day.
