I pity the fool who doubts the chances of the United States Men’s Curling team.

If the United States wins Saturday, we’ve got to start calling John Shuster’s bunch the “A-Team,” right? It’s only fitting. The curling team is on a heck of a run and defeated Canada in the semifinals for the chance to play Sweden for the gold.

In case you were wondering, Mr. T has been tweeting about curling too. He wished the team good luck after their win over the Canadians.



The match starts at 1:35 a.m. ET Saturday morning and will be televised live on NBC Sports Network.
