Aly Raisman's Dad

Hassled By Grumpy

A-Hole During Floor Finals

8/8/2012 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Aly Raisman's father stood up and cheered his face off after his daughter pulled off the greatest performance of her life last night ... which REALLY pissed off the cranky bastard who sat behind him.

It was HILARIOUS ... with his daughter about to receive the gold medal for the individual floor routine, some Olympic party-pooper grumpily reached over to Rick Raisman ... and nagged him to sit down and shut up.

Of course, Rick totally ignored the guy ... and probably cheered even louder.

So sorry America ruined your evening ... you black hole of fun, enemy of awesome, enjoyment-sucking pain in the ass.

Go USA!!

I'm all for supporting your daughter and the USA, but don't be a d*ck about it. I'd have told him to sit down & shut up too! Then I'd have smacked his wife in the head, because even when seated, she is incredibly annoying!

I can't stand grumps like that who are too lazy to get off their caboose and cheer at football games. They want everyone to bow to their will and stay seated instead of standing up and cheering when a good play is made. I ignore them. That is my advice to Aly Raisman's parents and to every parent who has a child performing in the Olympics. I have enjoyed watching all of the parents in the stands when their child has turned in a great performance. Keep ignoring the grouches!

Sorry, but I have to disagree. EVERYONE is there to watch the events. Nobody should be standing up in front of anyone for any reason. You can cheer just as loud and be just as excited...sitting down.

So mom and dad cheering on their daughter, so what. Raisman nailed it. The judges agreed. She got the gold medal.

I guess that Michael Phelps' mom and sisters should have stayed in their seats and clapped politely too. I'm guessing all the people complaining about Aly's dad are the same people who go to rock concerts and are mad at the people who get up and dance. You go Mr Raisman - that is your baby and I would have done the exact same thing.

These people could all easily be converted to Muppets. Use one of the grumpy ole guys in the balcony for the Grump and that eagle dude for the Dad.

If you watched the entire event, you would know that he jumped up during her routine but as soon as it was over, he moved into the aisle and stood at the railing to avoid blocking anyone's view. He did this after both of Aly's routines: beam and floor. He is excited for his child. Even if the person behind him had a child competing, they weren't competing at that moment because Aly was.

Aly Raisman's routine was fabulous. And I think you need to re evaluate how you judge the man seated behind the jump-up dad.
