The US Men's Olympic Curling Team Was Given The Wrong Gold Medals

John Shuster stood with a rock in his hand and a gold medal in his sights, and suddenly he did not seem like the same John Shuster.

But four years is a long time in curling, and now Shuster is a gold medalist.

They saw Shuster convert a double-takeout for a five-ender in the eighth - an exceedingly rare score that made it 10-5 and essentially clinched the win. "Im getting my heart broken, I feel like, by this sport — and this is silly. This is silly. This is the Olympics". They have worked so hard to get here. The episode had Russian Federation winning the bronze medal, while Switzerland took the real-life gold in Pyeongchang. Aaron Rodgers and the actor Laurence Tureaud, better known as Mister T, have become fans. Speedskating legend Dan Jansen called them.

Team Shuster certainly inspired people around the country with its improbable triumph. He was Paul Revere.

While she was at the Olympics, Christensen also saw Minnesota native Lindsey Vonn's downhill race, a US men's hockey game and the closing ceremony. Here it's like, 'Oh, the U.S.is in the quarterfinals of men's hockey?

The final of the women's Curling tournament at the Olympics will be held February 25. The Americans had all but won their first curling gold. That left Shuster with a relatively mundane shot for an nearly unprecedented score.

Edin is being ridiculous. Shuster works part-time at Dick's Sporting Goods and spends the rest of his time as a stay-at-home dad.

All in all, I think the Olympics is truly a fascinating event that does so much more than entertain.

In the middle of the gold-medal game, a fan shouted "I love your mustache!" to Matt Hamilton, who looked up and smiled.

"I, believe it or not, don't hate attention", he joked with reporters after Saturday's victory.

And these are the guys who dropped a five-point dagger on the vile and evil Swedes.

"This is what you dream about as a teenager", said Tyler George before the team faced Canada in the semifinals. "These are our friends".

Edin's final throw landed on the hammer, surrounded by four US stones, and Shuster, like he's done so much the last four games, came through. "And they showed the world that you shouldn't give up on them", Flaig said. My baseball career taught me to live life like I played baseball: walk around with a chip on your shoulder and understand what you're capable of.

Sweden outshot the US 85 percent to 80 percent. These guys were not invited to join. Be a witness as they finally make it to their rightful owners- Korea or Sweden- at 7:05 p.m.

American arrested as body parts found scattered across Japan
Yevgeniy Bayraktar was arrested last week for allegedly holding captive a 27-year-old company employee from Hyogo Prefecture. A surveillance video reportedly shows her walking with a man believed to be Bayraktar near Osaka's Morinomiya subway station.

"During the entire end, I felt it building", Shuster said.

This may be true. Whew! Plus I really enjoyed watching the Korean women's team.

It was not fun being on Team Reject.

BOBSLED HISTORY: John Morgan is going to need a few weeks to catch his breath after the bobsled competition.

In so many ways it was the fitting end to Shuster's winding road to the top of the podium in a sport tucked away into remote corners of America only to resurface as an addictive 2 ½-week soap opera every four years.

They may be Olympic champions but the reception the US men's curling team received from the airline bringing them back home to the usa was as cold as ice.

Shuster was passed over when USA Curling started a high-performance program after the Sochi Games to strengthen the curling athletic program.

"Put [my daughter] to bed and probably put myself to bed too", said Olympian Joe Polo, when asked what he was planning to do once he got home.

As one fan in the crowd put it, it's a story so wonderful, they should make a movie out of it.

Shuster lost 30 pounds.

The World Men's Curling Championship schedule can be found online. They got the gold, and that's all that mattered. There was no apparent sniping, no fear of what their teammates thought. "We always knew we had it in us". Fourteen days ago I had no idea what an end is.

They may not remain famous. That includes everything from Presidential Elections to Disney taking over Fox to apparently, the U.S. Curling Team winning a gold medal.

Whether it be Donald Trump being President or the Disney - Fox acquisition, one of the reasons why The Simpsons makes such freaky predictions much of the time is simply because they're thinking outside of the box while often inside of the room.

With a gold medal coming home and interest gaining throughout sport from the Olympics, the club is excited about the potential turnout of folks who want to give curling a try. Yes, they sell champagne.
