I want to move to Pori more and more. There is ALOT of Crazy and great people. I love their town and the team. Go ässät!
Their and Saipa's games have been the best games to watch emotionally right from the start. Both teams have been shooting the puck alot, playing physical and fast. I love those teams on todays field of Finnish hockey. It has been really exciting playoffs for Long time. I haven't even dared to watch those southern teams when they play finals, there is just absolutely no emotion in it. When these crazy porians play, it does absolutely not matter where you are from, you cannot help but become part of the atmosphere.
Daniel Brodin looks like great hockey player and young, do you think he travel to NA with Armia what you think?
Congratulations Ässät!!! It's been a long wait for these fans and the team, and I'm so happy for everyone in Pori right now. Just awesome. I'm at work here in North Carolina and I paid $1 on ruutu.fi to watch the 3rd period. I've NEVER been able to stream an SM-liiga game and it was so awesome to be able to watch the last part of that game.
This is OT but why did some of the Tappara players take the silver medal in their hands rather than have the guys put it around their necks?
I'm from Pori (I live in Turku now though) so I'm happy for the team even though I hardly watch SM-Liiga. (In fact, today's game was the only game I watched this season.) Happy for Ketola too. (His parents were actually our neighbors when I was a kid. I forever hold a grudge against the mother for taking my toy gun away because I tried to "shoot" her.)
Not really too happy about it since I dislike most Ässät fans (in Jatkoaika at least), but the team was absolutely great and deserved it! One can always speculate what could've happened if Connoly and Barkov were healthy but life isn't fair. Congratz to the team and at least some Ässät supporters (Juzmo seems like a nice guy )
