Even though the closing ceremony for the Olympics was held Sunday night, everybody was talking about how life imitates art --specifically the "Simpsons" episode which aired eight years ago, and had the USA defeating Sweden in curling at the Olympics for the gold medal.
On Friday, Team USA beat Team Sweden for the gold medal in curling.
In various episodes, The Simpsons has also predicted:
(1) the Ebola outbreak
(2) Greece's economic problems
(3) the Disney-Fox merger
(4) the NSA spying scandal
(5) Lady Gaga's Super Bowl half-time performance
(6) the Trump presidency
