And during the women’s gymnastics segment I was allowed to take a pleasant break from complaining about how alarmingly helpful the colored score shapes are to appreciate USA gymnast Aly Raisman’s parents watch her performance live (for them).

It was glorious. So much awkward reaction and gyration. They might as well have been watching animal porn starring the giant horse depicted on the dad’s polo shirt.
