Sen. Amy Klobuchar met with the 2006 U.S. Men's Olympic curling team at a ceremony Thursday where the team was honored as the U.S. Olympic Committee's 2006 Team of the Year.

The team consisted of five Minnesotans: Scott Baird, Pete Fenson and Joe Polo of Bemidji and John Shuster and Shawn Rojeski of Chisholm.

The team won the bronze medal -- the first Olympic medal ever for the U.S. in curling.
