GANGNEUNG, South Korea - The United States men's curling team brought the A-Team out for a motivational speech before its gold medal game against Sweden.
Turns out Mr. T is quite a curling fan.

Mr. T - best known for his role in the 1980s television series 'The A-Team' - will have to stay up late to watch the Americans. It's a 1:30 ET start back in the states.
The Americans are a surprise gold medal game participant after beating Canada in the semifinals. The US has won just one medal in men's curling - a bronze in 2006 in Turin.
