    Default Closing Ceremonies Discussion Thread

    Ricky Martin(ugh..), Andrea Bocelli(yay!), and Avril Lavigne(*shrug*) are scheduled to perform. Mary(yay!) from Olympic Ice is one of the hosts. As long as it isn't Brian Williams again, blech.

    It was funny when she croaked a "yup" when the commentator next to her (forgot the name) said how she likes Ricky Martin.

    I get so emotional in Closing Ceremonies-I wonder if they will mention our girl Michelle again.
    It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone.

    I get emotional too. Granted these haven't been the best Olympics, but they've had their great moments Its always sad to see them go. Its so much better than alot of TV these days.

    The part that Canada does towards the end was nice. I enjoyed Andrea Bocelli's performance. That was pretty emotional. I still don't get the Ricky Martin thing. It was an OK closing ceremony.

    Edit: nice to see that Emily got to march in the closing ceremony. Kimmie is also there. She seems to have really enjoyed her first Olympic experience. I didn't see Sasha though. Was she there? Its been so nice seeing Shizuka smiling so much.

    I wonder if Sasha and The Flying Tomato suddenly found themselves walking besides each other and then they just start talking each other....wouldn't that be awkward?

    I think Sasha was saying 'I lost my team' because the U.S. was all gone after her interview.

    LOL that's funny to think about. I bet if some people had their way that meeting would have happened.

    Anyone see the intruder? The guy just went on with his speech. Wonder what the intruder was protesting about....if he was protesting.

    That intruder was promoting a gambling website. Didn't some guy promote a gambling website in 2004 at the Summer Olympics and at the 2005 World Championships right before Michelle skated?

    The intruder was wearing a black T-shirt emblazoned with the name of an online casino. Police said he had a Turin staff jacket, allowing him to blend in with volunteers near the stage.
    Something needs to be done about these people! And on another note, how good can security be at these events, if these intruders can get onto the stage (or onto the ice - on the other hand, getting onto the marathon track in 2004 was, admittedly, a lot easier)?
