Britain, you did it right!
I loved the closing ceremony Sunday night. I stayed up until almost midnight, refusing to take my eyes off of the amazing musical extravaganza (hello Spice Girls, Blur, Oasis, George Michael!), even though I had a bunch of things to do. Well, actually I did start up some laundry for a few minutes at the sight of Russell Brand doing Willy Wonka and “I am the Walrus.” Then I was back!
Read all about it, if you missed it.
All in all, I have loved these games. Moreover, I’ve loved to read and hear about the sheer surprise and delight of the British people in seeing the success that they’ve become. Philip Reeves’ NPR report “Olympics have temporarily transformed England” actually made me cry.
Third best overall?! Yes! Congrats, Team GB!
