Amid the storm of criticism against NBC for airing its Olympic coverage long after the rest of the world has seen (and tweeted) all of the events, a Gawker blogger notes that the channel managed to do something right.
Here is the best video you will see from an entire weekend of Olympic sports: U.S. gymnast Aly Raisman’s parents reacting to her bar routine during today’s team qualifiers (Raisman scored a 14.166). Dear NBC: for training your cameras on this, everything is forgiven. This is what I look like when I watch Olympic sports.
I can’t embed the video, but do follow that link. It’s far more entertaining than another swimming heat. Raisman’s parents are now the breakout stars of the Olympics.
