In Case You Missed It: Pictures from the closing ceremony of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics

After 17 days of smiles, tears, sadness, injuries and  triumphant victories, the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics finally came to an end last night, February 28, 2010.  The ceremony was filled with performances by Michael Bublé, Nickelback, Avril Lavigne, Alanis Morissette,Neil Young and more. There were even appearances from a giant inflatable moose and beaver. The final medal standings had the United States in first place with 37 medals, Germany in second place with 30 medals and Canada in third place with 26 medals.  Overall, the Olympics were quite enjoyable, but the closing ceremony left something to be desired.

Pictures are courtesy the lovely photographers at Getty Images—Cameron Spencer, Kevork Djansezian, Matthew Stockman, Streeter Lecka, Richard Heathcote, Clive Rose, and  Jasper Juine.
