'The Simpsons' Predicted Team USA Winning Gold In Curling WTF

The U.S. won its first curling gold medal after beating Sweden 10-7 early Saturday morning.

Throughout the game, the crowd could be heard repeatedly chanted "USA!" as the team - which included Tyler George, Matt Hamilton and John Landsteiner - fought to take out the dominating Swedish team.

Against Sweden, which defeated the USA 10-4 in the round-robin part of the tournament, the Americans fell behind 2-0 after two ends but responded with two in the third and a steal of one in the fourth.

Some stranger who attended our Gold Medal game heard I was onboard today and offered to trade seats sending me up to First Class.

"Boy Meets Curl" also saw a USA curling team beat Sweden, though on TV it was a mixed team, not the men's team.

NPR's Melissa Block took a break from public radio to support Team Shuster. Team USA not only defeated Canada 9-7, they went on to win their final games against Switzerland 8-4 and Great Britain 10-4.

Meanwhile, Delta have released a statement on the upgrade denial and promise they will do everything they can to celebrate the team's historic accomplishment.

CAS annulled the results of the athletes and disqualified the Russian. "Thomas Bach was a drowning man", lawyer Jim Walden said on the weekend.

Shuster, 35, was a member of the bronze-medal winning side from Turin in 2006, but disappointing performances in Vancouver in 2010 and Sochi in 2014 meant he was dropped from USA Curling's national high-performance program four years ago, according to the New York Times. Fans, friends and loved ones crowded the small airport for their chance to greet the most successful American curling team in history. The Americans barely squeaked into the playoffs with a 5-4 record after losing four of their first six games to move to the brink of elimination.

The match settled into a 5-5 tie through seven ends before the USA stormed through with a rare five-point end in the eighth.

But despite having to fly home in economy seating, it looks the US Curling team was able to sweep the issue under the rug.

"It wasnt a big deal at all, I promise", Shuster said, smiling.

"I don't know if I would use the word "fun" in that situation", Edin said. "We hold @Delta in the same high regard we always have".

United States of America took a decisive 10-5 lead after scoring five points in the eighth end, leaving Sweden unable to recover, giving the American men their first curling gold - and triggering celebrations at watch parties in the wee hours of Saturday back home in the U.S.
