Duluth Welcomes Home US Men's Curling Gold Medalists

02 March 2018

The episode "Boy Meets Curl", the 12th episode from season 21, featured Marge and Homer joining a mixed doubles curling team with Agnes and Seymour Skinner. "We came out here with great intensity and just had to believe we could do it".

Back in the real world, the men's usa curling team - who were also at one point on the brink of elimination - became the first American team to win a gold medal in the sport.

Despite the team's best efforts, fans were amused, and a bit horrified when Delta tweeted back that they were delighted the team would be flying Delta, but they couldn't offer an upgrade. The United States won, 10-7.

"It was pretty awesome, he didn't give us, a pity the fool, or anything like that, but you definitely can tell, if you didn't know who was giving the speech, you could tell it was T", he said. "One of our goals was to come out and be ourselves".

Team USA's men's curling team shocked the world on Saturday when they completed a comeback from their struggles early in the Olympics to beat Sweden, 10-7, and win the first curling gold for the United States.

Against Sweden, skipped by Sochi silver medalist Niklas Edin, the U.S. were locked at 5-5 after seven of 10 ends but Shuster's men scored five in the eighth end to open up a huge gap. The King of Sweden was there, as was US presidential daughter Ivanka Trump. (Although Sweden had two stones in the house, the end does not count in the score).

Team Sweden eventually conceded the match to Team USA.

'Russia still not compliant on anti-doping'
Letting them do so would be the IOC's "worst decision", he said . "Thomas Bach was a drowning man", lawyer Jim Walden said on the weekend.

To chants of "U.S.A", four gold medalists from the men's team, along with two women's team members, followed a bagpiper into a packed ballroom through a canopy of curling brooms held up by local players.

With five straight wins, the US men's curling team won gold in Pyeongchang and cemented their place in Olympic history.

The final piece of Shuster's team was Tyler George, a former skipper and longtime rival of Shuster. "Big brother up north!"

But when the Americans looked at the medals draped around their necks, there was a problem: They had been given the ones engraved for the women's winners. It left Shuster with plenty of room to send the Hammer down and leave Team USA two in and 5-4 in front.

Curling is often overshadowed by the more well-known winter sports and more famous athletes.

"We are excited these Olympic champions chose to fly home on Delta", the spokesperson said. "We always knew we had it in us, but to do it when it matters most is what I'm most proud of overall". "They had a really nice gift presentation for us when we boarded", Goerge tweeted.
