London Olympics closing ceremony

The 2012 London Olympics are officially over. With the closing ceremony -- yet to be shown here in the United States -- feeling much like a musical repeat of the 1990s, I have to say that London's big spectacle was definitely the Opening Ceremony of the Olympics. When your closing ceremony features the likes of actor Eric Idle, Noel Gallagher formerly of rock group Oasis and The Spice Girls, that says to me that the heyday of England was about 15 years ago. Talk about clinging to the past. I was half expecting a hologram of The Beatles to perform while Winston Churchill addressed the crowd. At least The Spice Girls brought with them the possibility of some form of excitement -- I'm thinking nip slip or full-on wardrobe malfunction, maybe even some sort of below-the-waist flash revealing that Victoria Beckham likes to go commando but unfortunately there was nothing more than an appearance by the manufactured girl group showing off the fact that Melanie Brown (Scary Spice if you're nasty) hasn't been doing her cardio (at least Melanie Brown's outfit gave us the possibility of Scary Spice camel toe).
