Before I went radio silent during my vacation last week (sorry about that -- computer time proved refreshingly scarce), I wrote about my reactions to the last summer Olympics, when I was a new parent, finding myself relating to the moms and dads in the audience for the first time, especially Debbie Phelps.

Now there's a new standard in Olympic parents-in-the-stands moments, courtesy of U.S. gymnast Aly Raisman's folks, who followed along with her routine in the prelims yesterday, looking like they were trying to perform it themselves.

You have to see it to believe it.
