The Daily Hilario: Closing ceremonies and implosions and sadness

Al Bello

Your daily dose of off-topic shenanigans. Now with less Olympics; sadface.

I'm always sad when I watch closing ceremonies (and even sadder when NBC decides to cut almost 40% of it). Sad bear is sad. But then again, I'm a sucker for olympic competition. Only two more years until Rio then!

And now it's time for me to watch True Detective.
