The London Games are in full swing.

Once the alternately educational and mesmerizing Opening Ceremony was out of the way, everyone was finally ready to focus on the Summer Games themselves. Although the full schedule of events actually kicked off before the Opening Ceremony, many Olympics watchers really jumped in headfirst when Michael Phelps, Ryan Lochte and and a bevy of other swimmers hit the pool during the first weekend of the Games.

With more than 14,000 athletes from more than 200 countries competing over more than two weeks in events ranging from beach volleyball and handball to swimming and gymnastics, there will be something for everyone -- although not likely medals for all.

"I can't believe it's over."

Hours after the closing ceremony actually ended in London, NBC played back some recordings of athlete interviews done on the floor of the Olympic Stadium in the immediate aftermath of the performance by The Who.

Up first, 17-year-old swim star Missy Franklin summed up the feelings of everyone who has been contributing to this live blog for the past 17 days.

"I can't believe it's over," Franklin told Michelle Tafoya of NBC.

Sorry @NBC, not playing your switch-and-bait game trying to get me to watch your monkey show. #SwitchingChannels

@ Dowminator :

Really! I want to see The Who more than I want to watch NBC's newest comedy...

@ GlennaRegan :

Seriously, NBC? Animal Practice preview? You can't interrupt the Closing Ceremony with a promo for your dumb new show...

@ davewordnerd :

How desperate is NBC? Gotta interrupt tape-delayed Olympic closing ceremony to show a stupid sitcom?

@ davidlasseter :

Oh, so you have to sit through Animal Practice to get to The Who. NBC using the whole fist on us.

One Last NBC Fail...

With everyone knowing that The WHO already played in London hours ago but still waiting to see them during the Closing Ceremony broadcast, NBC decides to debut a new sitcom. So, you have to wait for this to see "Baba O'Riley" and "See Me, Feel Me" and "My Generation."
