August 5, 2016 is our next date with Olympic greatness in Rio. If the Winter Olympics are more your jam, only 540 days until the Sochi, Russia Games start on February 7, 2014!

After suffering from Olympics fatigue over the last week and wishing the athletes could just hit the snooze button and nap it out for a few days, I was revived by the Closing Ceremony.
Wait! Wait! Start over! Re-start the Olympics! It can't be over nooooooooooo. And then Prince Harry showed up, so I was on board. But then Twitter told me Ryan Lochte was already back home in Florida, so I decidedly exclaimed to no one, END THIS SHIT NOW.
So much happening what with the Spice Girls super-not-so-secret reunion, Russell Brand's horrible rendition of I Am the Walrus, and the general unnecessary overabundance of Beatles tunes. The UK could've one-upped the entire world by having Adele sing a few songs followed by a blackout. That's it. Check mate.
Before we pass the metaphorical torch on to Rio de Janeiro, these are my parting Olympic links:
- A complete video of lasting images (NBC will not allow me to embed their exclusive video, boo)
- 50 Memorable Moments of the Games
- Mc Kayla Maroney Is Not Impressed genius Tumblr
- 21 photos of Michael Phelps looking like a monkey
- Wrestlers who should run the world.
- And all the Decathletes.
Feeling all warm and happy now? I can still ruin that.
