What is it that in all recent Olympic closing ceremonies, they failed to make the extinguishing of the cauldron really emotional ans sad? I think that this was rather strange than anything else.

And apparently the ceremony now draws to a close, according to the German TV commentator.

And the iconic "Cidade Maravilhosa"...

"Bye-bye Rio" was a quote from Bach. The Olympians may be leaving, but the superhumans are on their way,

Why would you want to make it sad?

Because it should be a sad moment - the extinguishing of the flame is usually the emotional pinnacle of every closing ceremony, putting symbolically an end to the Games.

All this dancing looks really stale if you see empty seats and largely indifferent athletes and/or spectators in the background... This was a lot more festive and happy in the opening ceremony, especially during "Pais Tropical"...

Now just come to my mind that the quality of the costumes used in closing are far better than opening.

How does it feel for a Brazilian/Carioca to see those carnival performances in August, by the way? Like Christmas at the totally wrong time of year - or do you enjoy it at every time of the year?

Stick a fork in this

Time for "Ode to Joy" and fireworks and wrap it up please

If it was the Sambodromo, you'd be watching a whole evening of this sort of thing
