The much talked about and highly controversial 2014 Winter Olympics at Sochi have finally come to a close.
Sunday night the games ended with the traditional closing ceremony carrying of the flags, a huge honor that select athletes were excited to be given.
The ceremony also gave us plenty to continue to talk about, including everything from Nightmare Bear to the ring failure joke, but we’re still curious; WTF is curling?
Some who missed it are upset.
I missed the Closing Ceremony and The Walking Dead last night. My life is falling apart…

While others are glad to see the Olympics go.

But without them, life just isn’t the same.

Woah, eating breakfast without the olympics on in the background is a lot more boring. — Tom Hilde (@tomhilde) February 24, 2014
Many have ways to improve the games.
The Winter Olympics would be a lot more enjoyable if they were just new episodes of Shark Tank. — Funny Or Die (@funnyordie) February 24, 2014
While others could improve the closing ceremony.
If the Olympics were hosted in Ireland, everybody’d suddenly be gone just before the Closing Ceremony.

If nothing else, we finally found out that Russia has a sense of humor.
