A “Simpsons” episode from 2010 showed the united states beat Sweden to win the Olympic gold medal in curling. Just like the episode, the U. S Men’s Olympic Curling Team won a gold medal on Saturday after defeating Sweden 10-7 in the Pyeongchang Games. The victory is the second curling medal ever for the United States.

“The Simpsons” are credited with predicting the outcomes of Donald Trump’s presidency and the FIFA corruption scandal.

The episode, entitled “Boy Meets Curl,” which was broadcast on Feb. 14, 2010, followed the main character, Homer Simpson, and his wife, Margin forming a curling team that went on to win gold. Sweden went home with silver, as in South Korea.

“Congratulations to the USA Curling 2018 on their gold! Not the first time that the U.S. beat Sweden, though. Marge and Homer did eight years ago,” LaZebnik tweeted.
