You may recall that at one point, Springfield was due to host the Olympic games. Homer was prepared to make a killing selling Olympic mascot souvenirs (all kids love Springy the Spring!). Alas, Bart wrecked it all, and the IOC awarded the games to Shelbyville. D’oh! Well, tonight the Simpsons get another chance at the Olympics, as Homer and Marge qualify for the US Olympic curling team. Tune in to FOX at 8 p.m. to find out how Marge manages to hurt her arm… do the Simpsons bring home gold for Team USA?
