STRUT YOU FOOLS! USA wins Gold Medal in a sport (spoilers)

GANGNEUNG, South Korea – John Shuster, after falling to 2-4 and seemingly destined for a third straight Olympic failure, walked his family to the far exit of the Gangneung Curling Center late last Sunday night, put his 2- and 4-year-old sons on a bus and let his wife say everything she possibly could.

“To talk me off the ledge,” Shuster said. “I didn’t respond much.”

Shuster had no problem sleeping that night. He woke up, checked social media (which he swore he wouldn’t do here after a nightmare past), and found the story of Dan Jansen.

Jansen, an Olympic speed skater, failed at two Olympics, just like Shuster, then took gold in his last Olympic race in 1994.

“He got back up, and he wrote his story, and he’s an Olympic champion,” Shuster said. “I’m so proud I was able to do something similar.”

Shuster stared his past failures in the face and on screens at these Olympics and grabbed gold with a team that dubbed themselves rejects a few years ago.

One loss from elimination, Shuster, Tyler George, Matt Hamilton and John Landsteiner won five straight games over six days to capture the U.S.’ first Olympic curling title with a 10-5 victory over Sweden in Saturday’s final.

In an Olympics of improbable results – think Ester Ledecka, the German hockey team upsetting Canada and Mikaela Shiffrin and Marcel Hirscher missing the slalom medals – this one came on the last full day of the competition. The last two U.S. Olympic teams led by Shuster went 4-14, and though this new Shuster team won a world bronze medal in 2016, it was not considered an Olympic medal favorite.

Yeah, I'm strutting... (my mom, a curler since the 50s, spoiled it for me with an early morning practically-shrieking phone call).

Besides national pride, I'm also proud of my local curling club (home to the Hamiltons)...

AND feeling like curling is my last hope to get to go to the Olympics... Overweight Middle-Aged Dudes, represent!
