The flurry of media, including calls from friends and family, started as soon as the Games kicked off.
"When the games started the phone calls started coming in, the emails, the texts — now to the point where every single morning I have a funny run-in with somebody about it," Roberge explained. "It’s grown into this thing, but it’s hilarious, it’s awesome and I love it."
Roberge is taking the association with professional curlers and hockey players in stride. He notes he's always loved the Olympics:
"The Olympics is a huge event. I have memories my whole life watching with my family and now I do it in the mornings with my own kids."
While it's a funny coincidence, fans of American hockey are likely to take umbrage with the band's accepting attitude of the whole thing: The O.A.R. obliterated the USA in men's hockey on Saturday in a 4-0 rout.
