Listening to NBC Summer Olympics gymnastics "play by play" man John Tesh tear up at the news that Jordyn Wieber of the U.S. missed out on qualifying for the women's all-around final on Sunday didn't exactly bring me great pain.
Or my pain quickly subsided when the NBC cameras zoomed past the empty seats in London to focus on Catalina Ponor of Romania.
Suddenly myself and millions of other viewers were very interested in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
The three-time gold medalist in the '04 Athens games will turn 25 next month, which in this sport means she is closer to 83. It's all good. She should win the Gold medal even if she falls, trips and spits on a judge.
