This weekend, the US Men’s curling team made history at the 2018 Winter Olympics by earning the United States’ first gold medal ever in curling. It was huge upset to Sweden, which was poised to win gold.
After some much deserved celebration in Pyeongchang, the team is set to travel back to the States. It’s a long flight back from South Korea, and team’s official Twitter account tweeted to Delta yesterday asking (very nicely) for an upgrade…
Hi, there. Congratulations, gold medal champions! We are honored to be your ride back home! While we don't have any upgrades to offer, we look forward to seeing you on board. Thanks for flying with us! *AJL

I can’t imagine this is super serious attempt by the team, and I’m sure it’s all in good fun. But man, the men’s curling team sure hasn’t had it easy since (literally) seconds after they won. They were awarded the medals for the women’s curling team instead, and now NO upgrades on their flight back!?
Maybe they should be flown instead with United; after all, United is the official airline for Team USA…
