This Photo From The Olympics Closing Ceremony Proves That Sochi Can Make Fun Of Itself

Sochi Olympics Closing Ceremony Rings 2-23-14Now I know the 2014 Olympics closing ceremony doesn’t officially air in the U.S. until tonight, but it’s already going down in Sochi right now.  Fully expecting the ceremony to have a few WTF moments (much like the opening ceremony did) because the entire Sochi experience has provided more than a little internet fodder, I am pleased to see that everything is closing on a high note.  62 pianos worth of high notes, to be exact:

Now it’s time to pass the torch on to PyeongChang, South Korea, in hopes that four years is an adequate amount of time to learn from Sochi’s mistakes.  If not, at least we’ll have more GIFs and laughs coming our way.  Sochi, OUT.
