#NBCfail: Network spoils itself again with nighttime promo. USA TODAY 

We're through three full days of the London Olympics and already finding it difficult to keep track of all the #NBCfail moments.

Missy Franklin, 17, won gold in the 100-meter backstroke on Monday, which NBC held for its prime-time tape delay.

Just six minutes before airing the race, NBC ran a promo for The Today Show, which led off: "When you're 17 years old and win your first gold medal, there's nobody you'd rather share it with. We're there when Missy Franklin and her parents reunite…"

Here's video of the promo.
