Olympic curlers scheduled for TV appearances
The U.S. men's curling team will be making several national media appearances in the coming days as they share the story of their gold-medal-winning performance at the 2018 Winter Olympics.
Skip John Shuster and his team are slated to be on NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon" in New York on Friday night, where they're part of a lineup that includes "Hamilton" creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda, "Weird” Al Yankovic and "Home Alone" actor Macaulay Culkin. The show airs on KBJR-TV Channel 6 at 10:35 p.m.
No word on whether Miranda might offer some new song lyrics in honor of the curlers' own “Hamilton” — team member Matt Hamilton of McFarland, Wis.
The curlers then are scheduled to appear on NBC's "Today" on Saturday morning; the show starts at 7 a.m. on KBJR. On Saturday night, they'll be back on NBC at the Toronto Maple Leafs-Washington Capitals NHL game, being played outdoors at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Md. The game starts at 7 p.m.
In addition to Hamilton and Shuster, a Chisholm native now living in Superior, the U.S. team includes John Landsteiner and Tyler George of Duluth, and alternate Joe Polo of Duluth. They're coached by Phill Drobnick of Eveleth.
