I'm sorry to disappoint you, but czech complex never existed, it's only fan's excuse. It has always been just about being worse in hockey game.

Finland is Rocky damn it. Apollo=USA obviously. Sweden is Rocky's wife Adrian (who died in Rocky 5 or was it 6).

Its obviouse that better team on paper will win allways, as the pen is mightier than a sword, so Finland will have no chance being in the gold medal game. Just like it is obviouse that if this Swedish team Would play this Czhechs, they will win easily...

I actually like that everyone is writing us off even before the match. We tend to thrive in such conditions. Let them argue and speculate about their finals. Canada did the same thing.

We'll be playing dirty. According to SovSport the Globen services refused to wash our form after the game: "it is up to the Finnish side now, talk to them".

Does anyone have any video of the yesterdays games best crowd chants in Suomi - USA game?

That "Hey, hey hey"-"superwave" that they did many times and also after the game was best thing i've ever seen in any sports. What an atmosphere, amazing.

Well it is Czechs against Slovakia so I think there will be a plenty of free seats in the end because it's not so attractive for others. Actually we've already bought 1 pretty cheap ticket from some Finnish guy.

Back in January I placed 200 Danish kroner, about 40 dollars, that Russia would win the WJC - I thought. Because I accidently hit the wrong button and accepted the bet only to find out that I had in fact placed a bet that they would win the World Championships. The odds is 3.5 so I will earn about 140 dollars if they make it

BTW Russia did of course not win WJC
