    Closing ceremonies

    I thought the closing ceremonies were supposed to start at 7:30 EST. NBC is showing highlights from the games. Does it mean that the ceremony is delayed? Or is NBC's usual BS?

    It'd be plenty funny with just a maintenance guy. Why'd they have to make him a clown? Clowns are evil and nobody likes 'em. Would've been even funnier if they had someone famous as the maintenance dude.

    Just saw that newspaper article:

    At the closing ceremony of XXI Olympic Winter Games, eight minutes will be devoted to the presentation of Sochi, the Russian city where the 2014 Winter Games to take place.

    The presentation of Sochi 2014 will carry the concept of "The past, the present and the future of the national sport".

    Our illustrious past will be represented by three-times Olympic champions Irina Rodnina and Vladislav Tretiak.

    The present: the Olympic medalist Evgeny Plushenko and Alexander Ovechkin who participated in the Olympics-2006 and 2010, but not yet won a single medal.

    The beautiful future will be shown by the children of Ekaterina Gordeeva and Igor Larionov.

    Gordeeva's children are 17-year-old Daria (the father - two-time Olympic champion Sergei Grinkov, who died during training in 1995) and 8-years-old Elizabeth (her father is Olympic figure skating champion Ilya Kulik).

    Larionov's children (and his wife's, two-time World junior's champion in figure skating Elena Batanova) are 22-year-old Alena, 18-year-old Diana and 11-year-old Igor.


    Did someone see Daria and Liza??

    Wow Russia has a 10 minutes anthem, is the whole story of the country inside the anthem?I liked it
    Nice Socchi ceremony. And Navka!

    When someone sings the greek anthem with this voice, i cringe. Nevertheless it is always nice to hear it in Winter Olympics cause somehow it is the only way it can be heard there

    I saw Liza yes.

    The Russian presentation was the best part. Nothing too unexpected, but it's a lot easier to avoid tackiness and cheesiness when the country actually has some culture and history to back it up.

    Not that tacky and cheesy can't be fun if you make it so over the top, as the Canadians did.

    Although, that horrible Canadian comedian woman was nowhere near as good as the beat poet in the opening ceremony. She was so ingratiating.

    Ha! NBC chacks Nickelback. Finally, a chack we can all embrace.

    I watched the closing ceremony on NBC and they cut the last hour of the ceremony off. Really stupid

    I watched the entire ceremony BUT I did not see Daria, Liza or any of the kids did anybody get a clip of it? I saw Evgeni though and honestly, I did not enjoy seeing him, or Navka/Kos.

    OK, this is now officially the worst Olympic coverage in the history of the games. NBC TV just cut away from the closing ceremonies to show Jerry Seinfeld's new idiotic comedy show about a stuffed dog.

    Back to the Olympics in a half hour.
