Four years ago, Team Shuster and the U.S. men’s curling team became overnight celebrities after winning gold at the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics.
Shuster and Co. gained millions of fans around the country, but few were as loud and as proud as Laurence Tureaud, better known as "Mr. T".
It all started in 2018 with a tweet from The A-Team actor who is best known for pitying fools.
That was followed by another tweet where Mr. T called curling "kind of different" but "exciting".
From there, Mr. T’s love of curling turned into a full-fledged obsession. He was live tweeting games, providing context on what he’d learned about the sport, and even contacting Team Shuster directly to wish them luck in Korea.
He even created the hashtag #CurlingIsCoolFool to try to get others just as excited for his new favorite sport.
While so much has changed in our world over the last four years, one thing has remained the same – the Olympics are back, and Mr. T’s love of curling remains at an all-time high.
He’s showing off USA Curling swag, he’s live tweeting games, and he’s still making sure everyone knows curling is cool.
He even congratulated his new favorite athlete, Team USA skip John Shuster, on the honor of being chosen as U.S. flagbearer for the Opening Ceremony.
While Mr. T clearly loves curling -- and Team USA curling, in particular -- he’s made sure to let all of America’s athletes know he’s rooting for them, no matter what sport they’re competing in at the Winter Games.
There’s only one sport he loves enough to live tweet, though.
As the U.S. men’s and women’s team begin play in the 2022 Games, they have fans all over the country cheering them on. And if you’re not, you should be, because ... #CurlingIsCool.
