Danell Leyva’s Towel

What’s that you say? Danell Leyva’s Towel is from Walmart? That’s right, folks. Rock on with your Walmart selves!

On Sunday night, while watching the United States men qualify for the Olympic gymnastics competition, I noticed something a little too familiar. I heard the NBC announcer talking about Danell Leyva’s Towel, and I thought to myself, I know that towel.

So I called over to my boyfriend, “Brian! Get over here.”

He looked at the TV, expecting to see some stellar Olympic gymnast doing cool moves, but instead he say someone waiting for results hidden by a towel. “Hey, that’s our towel. Weird.”

Weird, indeed. Apparently this towel is making a huge splash all over the internet, and we have a whole set of them. But, I’m not really a fan of them. In fact, I’ve hated them almost since I started using them. I prefer a bigger towel, and I’ve been saying for months that I need to find new towels. Luckily for me, other purchases were more pressing than a new set o’ towels. I can safely say that I own a set of towels that match Danell Leyva’s Towel, but of course, we had ours long before Danell’s Olympic all-around bronze medal.

Brian bought the towel set years ago from Walmart. They’re a little worn, but they are replicas of Danell’s towel, albeit a little darker in color. How fun for me!

I was so excited to see Danell medal last night, and so I realized that I needed to have a photo shoot in honor of him and his towel. All apologies for the red eye and scary faces. It was pretty late and I was having some fun.

Without further ado, the many faces of Chrissy with Leyva’s Towel:

Danell frequently hides beneath his towel, while he waits for the results.

That’s right. Danel Leyva’s Towel lives in my bathroom.

Woah! Towel!

Hiding Under the Towel Again

Your Welcome.

Despite their fame, I’m still not the biggest fan of the towels, so Danell, buddy, if you want a few more, feel free to stop by the Chicagoland area to pick them up. We’ve even got a few little matching hand towels for ya!

    I’m in the Chicagoland area and taking a chance that you might still have these stars and moon towels. My son is a gymnast and is a huge fan of Danell Leyva. I’ve looked high and low for these towels so my little buddy can carry them along to his meets. Any chance you have these and are willing to sell them?
