Odd facts about Niittymaki from wikipedia.org
 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antero_Niittymaki

Quote:

Niittymäki was the Philadelphia Flyers' 7th pick (168th overall) in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft. "I didn't even know I got drafted. I found out the next morning. I was really surprised." he says in an interview in November, 2003. Even if he would have opted to come immediately to the United States to play hockey, compulsory military service kept Niittymäki in Finland until January, 2001.
Quote:

Though he is lacking in injuries, Niittymäki does have a strange habit of sneezing when there are breaks in the action and TV cameras zoom in on his face.
Quote:

As far as American culture goes, Antero enjoys Everybody Loves Raymond and PlayStation 2. He is not a fan of cheesesteaks, traffic, and heights, though he does not mind flying. The hardest thing about adjusting to the country was learning the language, even though Niittymäki learned English and Swedish in school for six years while in Finland.

Antero Nittymaki won the inaugural Paris-Dakar rally using only a hubcap and sleigh dogs but the result was discounted when it was found that all other competitors had mysterious choked to death on their own elbows.

Antero Nittymaki can indeed create a rock so large that he cannot lift it. But he doesn't want to.

Antero Nittymaki's voice does not echo. Not ever.

Antero Nittymaki is one of the Viking Gods. The reason he never ended up on any of the runes was that nobody could chop a picture good enough of him in stone.

When the Boogeyman goes to sleep every night he checks his closet for Antero Nittymaki.

Antero Mittymaki was born on 6/18/80, 6+18+80 = 104
Lindros sweater # was 88, Clarkes was 16. 16 + 80 = 104
and....
Pelle Lindbergh was born 5/24/59, 5+24+59 = (I think you're with me on this!) 88!

Coincedence? We think not!!!!!

I liked "There is no theory of evolution, just a list of creatures Vin Diesel allows to live."
