* ArtisticLicenseSports: In this episode, mixed curling is a demonstration sport at the Winter Olympics. Curling has been staged at the Winter Olympics nine times - six as a medal sport (1924, 1998, 2002, 2006, 2010, and 2014), and three as a demonstration sport (1932, 1988, and 1992). On none of those occasions has there been a separate tournament for mixed gender teams in addition to the men's and women's tournaments. However, if the World Curling Federation wanted to add a mixed tournament to the Olympic program, and the International Olympic Committee approved this request, it would be added as a full medal sport, rather than as a demonstration sport.

** Bob Costas does not commentate on any sport during the Olympics. Instead he serves as a studio host for NBC, meaning he tosses to venues from the host city's International Broadcast Centre during primetime coverage. Costas has also never commentated on curling. During the Winter Olympics, NBC gives curling prominent airtime on its cable networks (usually, CNBC, with MSNBC and USA Network also broadcasting the sport). Fred Roggin (rhymes with "Rogan", as in comedian and UFC announcer Joe) hosts all curling coverage, with commentary from Andrew Catalon, who replaced the late Don Chevrier starting at the Vancouver Games (at the Sochi Games four years later, Catalon split duties with Jason Knapp). However, Costas is associated with the Olympics by the American public, and he is far more well-known to them than Roggin, Catalon, and Knapp, so, he got the role for this episode.

** At the Olympic trials, Homer throws the team's final stone too hard, causing Marge to guide it out onto the arena's concourse, and back onto the playing surface, where it lands right on the bullseye, allowing the team to win the competition, and the Olympic berth. In real life, when a stone leaves the playing surface, it is out of bounds, and can no longer be played.

** Agnes Skinner has a flashback to competing in pole vaulting at the 1952 Summer Olympics in Helsinki...while nine months pregnant with Seymour. In real life, a woman at full term in a pregnancy would not be medically cleared to compete in any sport. While women have competed at the Olympics while pregnant, they have done so in the very early stages of it.

** At the Opening Ceremony, there is a separate Parade of Nations for countries "not competing but observing". Obviously, there is no such thing in real life, as the ceremony would take all night. However, this added element was likely tossed in due to the RuleOfFunny, taking a subtle dig at the fact that the Opening Ceremony tends to take a while, anyway. Also, the Parade of Nations in this episode does not use the real life traditions of Greece leading off the parade, as it has done so since the 1928 Summer Games, in commemoration of them being the founders of the Olympics, and the host nation (in this case, Canada) marching in last. This is probably due to the fact that viewers who aren't sports fans or don't watch the Olympics wouldn't understand this element of the parade.
