Jinx is something that is a character trait.....whether you are positive or negative won't help a jinxed person
Even for a totally unlucky person it can all suddenly change.......

Who better to know that than Steven Bradbury...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steven_..._(speed_skater)
the most unlikely olympic champion ever. (It's really worth a read).
For years having constant bad luck..close to die for his sport he decided to have one last go in Salt Lake winter olympics 2002.........which made him suddenly the luckiest sport person of all time.

You can see here quarterfinal, semifinal and final snippets with dutch commentating (shouldn't be too much of a problem for a danish person).

So "doing a Bradbury" have become an australian way of saying when doing the impossible and never giving up!

I was lucky to see all the short track races live back then..unbelievable!
Prolly not, but im gonna have to restrain myself.. This past week has been a horrible one for Danish Hockey

But what an awesome story that one Warms the heart

In other news..

Looks like Eller is once again "rewarded" with 4th line duties...
