This year's Championship follows the historic first-time gold medal-win by the U.S. Men's Curling Team in the 2018 Olympic Winter Games, giving fans an opportunity to experience the worldwide sensation of curling in Las Vegas.

That feat requires context to fully appreciate.

Shuster's five-poiint double takeout in the eighth frame did in Sweden in a 10-7 victory.

The triumph of the US curling team at this year's Winter Olympics was a major upset no reasonable person could have seen coming.

After the Associated Press obtained a medal tally projection chart created by the United States Olympic Committee (USOC), it became clear that Team USA did not meet the organization's expectations for awarded medals in Peyongchang.

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.

"That's the first time in my life that I've cried happy", said Curry, a Canadian who is George's girlfriend.

"After [starting 2-4], I sat on this grassy knoll out here, and I looked at the Olympic venue", Shuster said.

Even when the women didn't win gold, they still made history.

Friends, relatives and total strangers turned out to greet Team Shuster after winning their historic gold medal at the Olympics in South Korea.

"We got a warm welcome in Detroit, a very warm welcome in Minneapolis and an extremely warm welcome here in Duluth", he said, with a chuckle.

JOHN LANDSTEINER: Well, first of all, I'm way more nervous now than I was to play for a gold medal.

That one originated earlier in the tournament when a couple of guys returned from the concession stand with a cardboard box loaded with beers.

The Americans may have had a high-profile fan amongst the 3,000 crowd, but the Swedes trumped Ivanka with a king, Carl XVI Gustaf, the Swedish monarch who was sitting a few seats away.

Shuster often hears Luke's voice down on the ice, which he says makes him smile and feel relaxed. Shuster then overshot on his last delivery and Sweden was able to score two and again take the lead, but by the sixth Team USA had retaken the lead.

Then Shuster drops his five-point dagger, and the place erupts.

Minutes later, it's official.

Social media was quick to remember that The Simpsons had depicted a similar U.S. triumph eight years ago in a season 21 episode titled "Boy Meets Curl". Grandma Jackie has Luke, who is giddy with excitement. "I'm sure the women who win the Gold medals won't be too appreciative of the guys' teeth marks or saliva on their medals!"
