Mr. T: Curling's Biggest Fan
Most people might know of Mr. T for being big and tough and pitying fools. But during the Olympics, the only fools he's pitying are those not watching his new favorite sport: curling. Mr. T took to Twitter regularly to express his support of Team USA.
But Mr. T didn’t just keep to Twitter. He took a more personal approach to pump up the team.
Guess who just phoned our guys to say good luck tonight?? The one and only @MrT himself. Can’t thank T enough for calling and hopping on board the #TeamShuster and @usacurl train!! #TeamUSA #curlingiscoolfool #TeamT pic.twitter.com/qN3MNMsybN— Team Shuster (@TeamShuster) February 24, 2018
