NBC airs commercial spoiling Missy Franklin’s backstroke gold medal

In case you haven't heard, NBC has faced a wee bit of criticism for their tape delaying of this year's Olympics.  Just a wee bit.  However, there are indeed some individuals out there that are successful in their endeavor to not have results spoiled before enjoying the primetime broadcast.  Maybe they don't believe in having the internet or cable.  Maybe they don't have a Twitter account.  Maybe they have 9-5 jobs.  Who knows.  However, not wanting to leave those people out of the spoiling brigade, NBC managed to air a commercial celebrating Missy Franklin's gold medal in the 100m backstroke minutes before Franklin's race was scheduled to air.  Oy.  At least we're all on the same page now.
