Olympic Blog Relay: Closing Ceremonies

First of all, thanks to everyone for your great support! You made hosting this relay an amazing experience, and I loved reading all the stories and comments.

Special kudos go out to our torch-bearers for sheer awesomeness!

I also promised prizes, and what's more fun than official London 2012 hat pins? I had a blast collecting these kind of pins in '96 and '02, so I hope you guys enjoy 'em too! Here we go:

Bronze: Alex Cavanaugh - For getting us all into shape to chase down our writing medals!

Silver: Mark Koopmans - For sharing what I think might be one of the most inspiring Olympic stories ever. If you missed it, check it out here.

Gold: DL Hammons - For true grit! The relay fell right in the midst of Write Club, and DL is a writing all-star for balancing both. That takes some guts, man!

Winners - email me your addresses, and I'll mail these out to you. And thanks again to ALL OF YOU for making the relay such a blast!

In other news, lots has been happening in the Blogosphere.
