VAN­COU­VER (CP) — Marge and Homer’s trip to the 2010 Win­ter Olympics is a big hit with curlers who are just a day away from beginning com­pe­ti­tion.

An episode of the long-run­ning com­edy The Simp­sons fea­tur­ing the car­toon power cou­ple play­ing the game ran Sun­day night.

Mem­bers of the U.S. Olympic men’s team got to­gether to watch the episode and it was a hot topic of con­ver­sa­tion at prac­tice at the Van­cou­ver Olympic Cen­tre.

Team Canada skip Ch­eryl Bernard called the at­ten­tion good for the sport.

In the episode, Marge played a curl­ing nat­u­ral who had to de­cide whether to win a pos­si­ble medal by ask­ing Homer to leave the team or ruin their chances by keep­ing him.
