US men capture gold in curling

USA curling fans

Is curling really your new favorite sport?

"My mom just wanted to come, so we came with her", said Kaitlin Traylor, 13, who was wearing two small usa flags in her hair. The charming youth Red Gerard, a gold-medalist in slopestyle, came in at sixth with Chris Corning just behind him.

The U.S. men's team is heading to its first gold medal game in Olympics history after upsetting curling powerhouse Canada Thursday morning.

Together with Tyler George and John Landsteiner, they formed a group that they cheekily called the "reject team".

Shuster's five-poiint double takeout in the eighth frame did in Sweden in a 10-7 victory. We still had seven ends to go and I knew I needed to make a decision. "One of our goals was to come out and be ourselves".

The first ends were evenly balanced with the team in gold position flipping back and forth throughout.

The American team won the gold medal match after scoring five points in the seventh end to take a commanding 10-5 lead in the match.

His throw was flawless, knocking out Sweden's stone and giving the U.S.an astounding five points. Good thing, because the game is tense as the lead goes back and forth.

Mane finished it off by touching it past Adrian for a 4-1 advantage. They have acted as the backbone of the club's success this season.

Another error by Edin in the 8th sealed the victory for the "ragtags".

The teammates, who were accompanied by USA women's curling team members Cory Christensen and Aileen Geving of Duluth, were treated like royalty even before arriving home, said Landsteiner. The ice sports! The northern stuff!

But the athletes took the refusal very sportingly and replied, "They have treated us well!"

"Simpsons" writer Rob LaZebnik, who is credited with creating the episode, tweeted his congratulations to the victorious team and playfully mentioned the men were the second team to beat Sweden in curling at the Olympics, Entertainment Weekly reported. With no other alternative, Shusters team made a decision to just have fun and see where that took them.

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

They talked afterward about preaching the curling gospel, of using this time in the sun to get America excited about curling. "Instead of just shaking hands, it was one of those moves that you're trying to give the crowd, all the disappointment we felt, give them a little something back".

As an longtime Olympic fanatic and proud US citizen, I was very eager to see the stars and stripes compete for gold in their first Olympic curling gold medal game appearance.

From there, Sweden was playing catch-up. A major difference in curling, however, is that the sheet is "pebbled", or has a rough finish, which affects the movement of the stone.
