    Well, we do like this a lot better than the opening ceremony.

    Brazil's anthem sounds like something out of an operetta. I can't wait to see their presentation.

    They sure like them light bulbs in their costumes! It's going to look super festive over there in 2016.

    Rio looks like it will be fun!
    Loving the end of the ceremony and the olympic flame looks great. Brave of Gary Barlow to sing after losing his baby a few days ago.

    Job well done to everyone involved in this olympics!

    The extinguishing of the flame/rising of the phoenix was very well done I thought. And now we have the Who!

    I liked the ending of the ceremony much more than the beginning. It got better as it went along.

    London did a hell of a job and everyone involved deserves a lot of credit for how smoothly it went.

    Although I love the sporting events, I can't be bothered with the ceremonies. Not sure why, although I think they're a colossal waste of money. I would love to attend the games some time though.

    I love it all. I really want to go to the games some time too. I'm desperately trying to bribe everyone in my family to find one person to go with me to Brazil in four years. I might hit you up for Rio, Brookie!

    There were rumors of Elton John or the Rolling Stones performing. Did they actually perform?

    Wow NBC cut out a whole chunk of the ceremony! They didn't show the phoenix dancers or the extinguishing of the flame!
