3. So we were *WAY* overdue for some excitement:

4. Gisele’s walk during the ceremony was definitely a highlight:

5. And we all kind of loved her dancing in the audience afterward, right?

14. Some people marveled at the athleticism on display:

I like the Olympics because they combine things I don’t understand with making me feel bad about my body.
