The 2010 Winter Olympics were a major international multi-sport event held in Vancouver, Canada for teams to enter from each country. Homer, Marge, Principal Skinner and Agnes Skinner entered the mixed-doubles curling demonstration event, and won the gold medal over Sweden and Russia.
There also appeared to be a bobsleigh event as Homer went down the slope accidentally.
In the Opening Ceremony, the countries were read out by the people that sang for Ghostbusters, singing "Who you gonna call?" and finished with beavers (Canadian doves) being chucked in the air and left to run havoc.
Olympic pins were sold as promotional items for the games. Pin sellers made a lot of money selling pins as it got very addicting.
