The Canadian Olympic team may not agree with David Rose’s stance on team sports, but they had no problem catching up with Rose family of “Schitt’s Creek” before Tokyo 2020’s opening ceremony.
But athletes get a kick out of Rose.
While Rose might not necessarily be a fan, “Schitt’s Creek” creator Dan Levy, who plays the character in the show, seems to be.
Eugene Levy, the Canadian comedy legend and well-known sports fan who plays Johnny Rose on the show, retweeted Humana-Paredes’ video alongside three heart emojis.
This is not the first time “Schitt’s Creek” has entered Canadian sports culture. Characters from the show were among the cardboard cut-outs in the stands at Blue Jays games while the team played in Buffalo and Dunedin, Fla.

Hawk, who is serving as an analyst for NBC during these games, posted clips on Instagram of himself skating on the park course. He predicted the skateboarding events — street and park — would be among the highlights of the Games.
“As a kid that was mostly lambasted for my interest in skateboarding, I never imagined it would be part of the Olympic Games,” he wrote. “It’s surreal to now be in Tokyo bearing witness to this milestone in the most unprecedented way.”
