So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye

With the Olympics over, it is time for us to leave our spikes at the plate, our shoes on the mat, and say goodbye to all the fun that was Fourth-Place Medal. We have had a blast writing about the Beijing Olympics. Though we've returned to getting a full night's sleep, we already miss writing about shooting love stories, Olympic mysteries, wrestling gold, cheerleaders and Michael Phelps' briefs. We've picked up some favorites, like Bela, Leryn Franco and that Phelps guy. Mostly, we just tried to point out the highlights, lowlights and absurdities in the Beijing Olympics. We thank you for joining us on this journey. We won't be hanging around these parts anymore, but you can enjoy all of the other Yahoo! Sports Blogs and please come see us at our other blogs:

Chris Chase: Player Hater's Ball

Bill Fitzgerald: Fitz's Facts

Nick Friedell: Big League Stew

Maggie Hendricks: Chicks Heart Fights and Ladies ...

Pat Imig: Joe Sports Fan

We've really enjoyed writing for you, and appreciate our readers more than we can say. Adieu, adieu, to you and you and you.
