2012 Blogville Olympics Closing Ceremony

We'd better get inside, the Closing Ceremony is about to start!!!

Welcome, welcome, welcome to our Closing Ceremony of the 2012 Blogville Olympics.  I need everyone to take their seats...

Thank you.

I, Finnackles, will be your MC for this evening.


Thank you.  I love you guys too!

Closing Ceremonies celebrate the culture of the place where the games has taken place.  
Here in Blogville, a place I am most proud to be a part, 
we have many parts to our unique culture.

There are present swaps and giveaways and Blogville newspapers...

There are residents that live inside and out...

All the crew at K9 Katastrophie

Shelldon and Beachnut


There are badges and honors...




There are memes for every day of the week or for every month in the year...


There are plays, games, challenges and events...



There's even a boot camp and a gardening club!

Some of us have special talents, special trainings, 
special jobs, and special Saturday steps... 

George and Tess


And some a keen fashion sense...




And, most importantly, there is much much much love and respect...







Traditionally, the torch is extinguished to symbolize the ending of the games.
Sarge has volunteered his services to set out the flames.
Take it away Sarge.

Nice work!  I know you've been holding it in for a while.  BOL!  
Thanks Sarge and I hope you didn't get singed!

And now, on to our Mayor Mr. Frankie Furter for his closing remarks.  Mr. Mayor?

Thank you Finnackles for that introduction.

Ladies and Gentlemen I stand before you, this glorious day, to tell you that the 2012 Blogville Olympics was a complete success.  From the Astounding Open Ceremonies to the Fabulous Closing you have enjoyed the BEST of the BEST that Blogville has to offer.     Our Hosts brought you Astounding Venues where athletes were able to demonstrate their prowess in so many varied ways.  You were just treated to a marvelous Closing Ceremony and you are joined in this stadium by Both the ATHLETES and their EVENT HOSTS.  This is their time to sit back and bask in the glory of their fine OUTSTANDING Efforts.   Let us stand together once again in Recognition of Each and Every ONE...  they are ALL WINNERS in the eyes of Blogville.  ....870 seconds o Standing Ovation...

    What a wonderful wonderful post! I especially love the part about Blogville! As a relatively new resident of Blogville, I have enjoyed meeting other residents and learning about its wonders. I am so proud to be a part of Blogville and the Blogville Olympics!

    Many thanks to Finn and the many other Olympic hosts and athletes! I haven't been able to attend as many events as I would have liked due to my mom's broken arm and surgery (talk about bad timing), but I hope to get to more of the posts and enjoy them after the fact.
