CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. – John Orozco and the United States men’s gymnastics team fell short in their quest for the nation’s first Olympic gold since 1984.

In fact, the Americans did not even medal.

The U.S. finished fifth in Monday’s men’s team finals at the 2012 Summer Olympics. China, Japan and Great Britain took the gold, silver and bronze medals, respectively.

The United States tallied 269.952 points, while fourth-place Ukraine accumulated 271.526 points.

The American men finished third in the floor exercises, seventh in the pommel horse, fourth in the rings, sixth in the vault, third in the parallel bars and third in the horizontal bars.

NBC will broadcast the men’s gymnastics finals at 8 p.m. EDT on tape delay.

Orozco will next compete in the men’s individual all-around on Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. EDT.

Guess that picture of Orozco and his fist pump was premature and he should have waited until he and his team mates did something to warrant it.

Too bad NBC's coverage sucks so badly. I hope NBC files for bankruptcy and every one of those arrogant NBC "executives" who are telling viewers to go scratch has to file a personal bankruptcy to go along with their moral bankruptcy!

Was it really necessary to post this to Facebook???? How about a spoiler alert?
