I thought the closing ceremonies were a little odd. That whole comedy bit seemed very out-of-place (although Michael J Fox looks great!), and the less said about that whole Michael Buble-Busby Berkley musical number, the better.

I did really like the intro, with the tongue-in-cheek fixing of the torches. Well-played, Canada!

As well as being not funny.

I loved Neil Young, I looooved the giant inflated beavers, but the concert bit was horrific, to put it mildly.

It's hilarious, but also kinda sad that they're such sore losers.

If we played so poorly against Slovakia and barely squeaked by against USA, either that means both Slovakia and USA ALSO are doped up, or of course there is the possibility that we doped up JUST to play the Russians..

Or, of course, the most likely possibility: you just suck now Russia. GFY!

I wouldn't take pravda.ru too seriously. They've also published articles entitled "Mutilated Farm Animals Most Likely Victims of UFO Experiments" and "Killer UFOs hide in lakes", among many other off-the-wall ones. There's a link to "Aliens Land in Russia" right under the Olympic article on the home page.

I do like that Ovechkin essentially has told the NHL/Bettman to go F*** themselves if players are not allowed in the Olympics in 2014.

Yes, that's great. And seriously, what could be better for hockey in the U.S. (Bettman's raison d'etre it would seem!) than something like yesterday's game?!

Pravda's assertion that a drug that can improve performance overnight exists is intriguing. How much does it cost, and where can I buy it?

Just caught up on the thread

VP - You're hilarious!

The last thing I saw of the closing ceremonies was Michael Buble, then they cut to the Marriage Ref. There was supposed to be an hour of something following the nightly news, but I didn't catch that. So I never saw half of those Canadian performers you guys mentioned.

All I got to see of the hockey game were the highlights on the news - basically the 5 goals. Wished I could have been home to watch. Congratulations Canada! Nice ending to the Winter 2010 games I did see Miller walking into the closing ceremonies. I think they mentioned that many of the players wouldn't be there as some had games starting tonight in the NHL.
