Gotta be SpotterDad
He's the Nick Punto of both fathers and spotters.

I see two possibilities
1) he had seen her complete it so many times that he instinctively assumes she'll make it again

2) he's not actually supposed to catch her in that situation - he's only there to protect against an unsafe fall, like if she's coming down headfirst. If she's just falling flat on her body, I'm not sure coming down on two arms is any better than the mat anyway.

A collision course for Thunder Dan and the Admiral seems imminent.
The dream of the 90s is alive in this gif tournament.

perfect things...
about The Admiral gif:

1) The color of his shirt is exactly the same as Bomb-Lady's, making for a seamless ‘WTF'

2) As her head pops up, his lean to his left completely obstructs his view, like he's playing peek-a-boo with us
