2012 London Olympics Closing Ceremony

To wrap up my obsessive Olympics watching I tuned in for the closing ceremony on August 12th. It was basically one big dance party. The best part was Eric Idle from Monty Python and the human cannonball. I also really enjoyed how the torch was put out with the phoenix in the background. It also took me back to my middle school days with the Spice Girls reunion. I half expected Nsync, Backstreet Boys and Britney to join them.

These were a few of my favorite things:
