    Mr. T pities the fool who doesn't watch curling at the Olympics! The actor was among celebrities and former Olympians watching the 2018 Winter Games and expressing their admiration and support for Team USA. 

    The actor, born Laurence Tureaud, said Saturday on Twitter that he was "pumped to watch the Winter Olympics" and that curling was one of the winter sports he never thought he'd care to watch. 

    "You heard me, curling Fool!" the "A-Team" star said, using his trademark phrase. 

    "Curling is kind of different, but it’s Exciting," Mr. T added. "It’s not as easy as it looks. It takes some skills that’s for sure. I like it!"

    On Friday, the day of the Pyeongchang opening ceremony, Mr. T sent Team USA his good wishes. 

    "When I saw the American Flag, followed by over 240 Olympians, it made me feel really good. I Wish All of them Success! Go USA #2018WinterOlympics," he wrote. 

    "Saturday Night Live" star Leslie Jones has been tweeting all things Olympics since Feb. 8. Known for her prolific Twitter commentary during the Rio Games, Jones was back in front of the TV, firing off passionate commentary during figure skating and other events. 

    She also voiced her support for Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski, NBC’s prime-time figure skating announcers whose painfully honest commentary received some backlash on social media.

    "Yo Tara and Johnny are the new ice skating announcers to me!!! They are brutal and not letting nobody get away with anything but you have to expect that from champions!! I love what they doing!! @NBCOlympics @Olympics," Jones wrote. 

    Former Olympian Kristi Yamaguchi wished brother-sister ice dance team of Maia and Alex Shibutani good luck before their short dance Saturday and Apolo Ohno urged everyone to check out an "incredible" men's long track 5,000m speedskating event.
