The Simpsons Predict the Future (Again)

A famous TV show featuring timetravling cartoon people? Well not exactly but it comes as no surprise that the TV show “The Simpsons” is very well known for having events appear in their shows, only to have the exact same or very similar events  happen a few years later in real life.

That’s right, “The Simpsons” are notorious for predicting the future.

One example is on March 3, when the United States men’s curling team won the Olympic gold medal at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.  

The Men’s curling team won an absolute thriller against Switzerland by a score of 10-7.  

Fans of the United States experienced a similar outcome when, in episode 12 of season 21, “Boy Meets Curling”, Marge and Homer join a coed curling team for fun. Despite Marge receiving a heartbreaking shoulder injury, the team still manages to defeat Switzerland and take gold in the tournament.

This is very similar to what happend at Pyeongchang just a few days ago.

As for the curling itself, many people at South were very excited about USA taking gold.

“I don’t watch curling a whole lot but I was extremely proud of my country when they took gold,” said sophomore Avery Glover.

Other students around the school had similar comments about the event.

Matt Suchanick, sophomore, said “I was absolutely ecstatic while watching us take gold in the Olympic finals.”

Other students had different views on the win.

Freshman Laura Distefano said, “I don’t care much at all for the “sport” of curling so USA talking gold had no effect on me.”

Although the simpsons story is a little bit off it is still eerily similar to what actually happened and that is enough to freak most people out. Just be sure that if the Simpsons ever make a March Madness bracket you copy it down exactly.
