Unhappy Patron, Late breaking Olympics Wrap-Up Edition

A patron took a moment to complain to me about the closing ceremonies at the Olympics. When he asked me if I had seen them, I replied that I hadn't and hoped that this would be enough to stop the conversation. He held forth for several minutes about how awful it was. He was specifically unhappy about the fact that the American influence was too great and that it wasn't British enough. American bands dominated the evening, he opined. I asked which American bands played, since I'd only heard about British bands from a coworker who stayed up too late to watch. "The Who, for one," he said.
