This United States curling team is just hours away from playing Sweden in the gold-medal game at the Winter Olympics, and while they were sweating it out in the locker room they got a phone call from one of their biggest fans: Mr. T. 

And they caught part of the phone call on video. Check this out

Not only that, but Mr. T, known for his "pity the fool" saying, started a hashtag on Twitter of #CurlingIsCoolFool. 

If you're not staying up for the 12:05 a.m. match, well, then we pity you, fool. 

If you do stay up, you can watch it live on NBC Sports Network or at NBCOlympics.com
