The One Where the Olympics Are Over

I knew this day was coming.  I've been dreading it since those wonderful fireworks exploded over Olympic Stadium two weeks ago.  The Games have ended :( I don't know what I'm going to do anymore when I get home from work.  I had developed this wonderful routine of coming home, watching a few events, head back to campus and get home in time for the prime time events.  It was beautiful! But, alas, all good things must come to an end.

As I think back over the Games I must admit that the London ones were my favorite (it may be because they're some of the only ones that I remember, but that's a minor detail). They were full of triumph, heartache, and not a few history-making moments.  

These were some of my favorite:
-Ryan Lochte winning the 400IM
-Gabby Douglas winning the Gymnastics All-Around
-Rebecca Soni breaking the world record in the 200 breast
-Team USA breaking the Women's 4x100M world record
-Mo Farah winning gold in the 10K
-USA Women's team wins gold in gymnastics
-Usain Bolt sweeping the sprints
-Three-peat by Misty May and Kerri Walsh
-Missy Franklin's interview with Bob Costas
-All of Oscar Pistorius
-Dana Vollmer's world record swim
-Chad le Clos wining the 200M fly
-Andy Murray topping Roger Federer in a Wimbledon rematch
-Michael Phelps becoming the most decorated Olympian ever
-USA swim team making a cover to 'Call Me Maybe'
