The 2018 U.S. Men’s Olympic Curling Team will leave no stone unturned when it comes to defending its beloved sport. Just ask Kirstie Alley.

“Cheers” alum Alley found out the hard way that the team is not to be messed with, after deeming the sport “boring” on Monday.

“I’m not trying to be mean but … Curling is boring,” Alley tweeted.

To which the team, who apparently aren’t big “Look Who’s Talking?” fans, replied, “We’re not trying to be mean either but your movies weren’t exactly riveting theater Kirstie. #justsaying #curling #rockit #TeamUSA.”

Don’t worry, though; despite the chilly back-and-forth, this story has a happy ending. By early Tuesday, Alley experienced a change of heart, tweeting, “OK I’m gonna give it another chance! My son loves watching Curling! He doesn’t love figure skating which I do so we can make each other give 2nd chances today!!”

The actress’ willingness to give curling another chance earned kudos from the team, who offered to hook her and her son up with lessons and some swag.

“Awww @kirstiealley, we knew you’d come around! Allow us or our good friends at @HollywoodCurl to show you and your son the ropes sometime,” the team tweeted in response. “In the meantime, let us outfit you both with a @usacurl shirt. #TeamKirstie #TeamShuster #TeamUSA #curling #cheers.”
