After Kirstie Alley called the Olympic sport "boring" Monday night on Twitter, Team USA's John Shuster fired back at the actress and her extensive filmography.

Meanwhile, the USA women's curling team also is 4-4 after a 9-6 loss to first-place Korea on Tuesday. This is not a situation that we're going to be uncomfortable in.

The U.S. men's team pulled off a huge victory over Canada Monday and later defeated Switzerland for a second straight win to keep their playoff hopes alive.

The Americans finished tied with Great Britain and Switzerland at 5-4 in round-robin play, but the US advanced to the semifinals based on head-to-head record while the other two teams will play in a tiebreaker on Thursday to determine the final playoff spot.

The U.S. team including Milwaukee's Brian Hansen and Marquette student Emery Lehman lost the D final of the team pursuit competition to Canada and finished last of eight teams.

Canada has won the past three Olympic gold medals in men's curling.

The result left Great Britain in a three-way tie for third place alongside US and Switzerland, with the Americans sent through on account of their better head-to-head record between the three teams.

Matt Hamilton of the USA team also got involved, telling Alley "You're entitled to your wrong opinion".

He said: "It's the Boris Johnson school of having the cake and eating it, which we already know is unrealistic". But EU leaders have warned Britain can't have both freedom from the bloc's regulations and frictionless trade.

For the USA, however, the win over this competition is not lost in the shuffle.

The U.S. team kept control of the scoreboard today to fuel the win over Great Britain as they surged into the playoffs.

"I am just very proud of how my team played", Roth said. It never led past end two. When Korea beat Japan a short time later, the US secured its semifinal spot.

Denmark finishes round robin play with a 2-7 record, worst among the 10 teams in PyeongChang. "If he can keep that up, I like our chances", said USA alternate Joe Polo of Duluth in a news release.

"We're not trying to be mean either but your movies weren't exactly riveting theater Kirstie", the team tweeted. Set some goals before each game. With the United States of America poised to score at least three points, Britain left their final throw very short of the target area and the U.S. was able to score four points, ending the game with a 10-4 victory. "Be ourselves and bring the best version of ourselves out onto the ice - and give it everything", said Landsteiner said in a press release, as he discussed the team's plans going into the semifinal against Canada.

Men's semifinals, 8:05 p.m.

"I think it's resilience the team has shown in the past few days". They'll now shift their focus to the semifinals, set to begin Thursday morning at 6 a.m. EST.
