Ah shut up.. Finns with there "Leijona" tattoos, leijona this and that stuff are Finlands rednecks. Pretty much our version of confederate flag. There's difference between pride and just being a redneck
Good for them. Europe desperately needs people with national pride.
Congrats to the US! Fun game to watch. It would have been interesting Sweden having all their players. Regardless, I am happy for a gold here and a bronze in the U-17. With 5 good teams every year (US, RUS, FIN, SWE, CAN) every year a couple teams will miss out.
Congrats to Team USA on winning the gold in just a terrific game. Props to Sweden on a great game and making our boys work for their win.
Really proud of the entire team, but especially the collegiate guys (I know, I'm biased ). Grimaldi, who finally got a couple of goals in the tourney, was great. Housley & co. did a wonderful job coaching the boys.
Buffalo is more or less Toronto... Northeast USA, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin cares... The rest... do not.
Sorry but not accurate. A decade ago? sure. But I know of a few bars in my area that opened early for viewing parties for this, that were pretty well packed. This tournament is becoming more of a big deal, and I know with a lot of people they're looking for whatever hockey fix they can get so this fit the bill in a big way for them.
That's what I do, might even rant here at best. Some finns take this way too seriousely, but its no suprise, sadly we are kinda famouse for not having any sense of humour. Basicly only ones who really have reacted are some finns
Well the sense of humour is hard to detect when you guys come in here with your Schadenfreude seconds/minutes after we lost but hey I am all for putting this Swedish/Finnish rivalry at a Swedish/Norwegian level.
Well hand in hand lets pour some water on that fire
Uhhh....now the disappointment is starting to set in. I demand a replay....no fair
I just polled the 12 people in my house to watch the game and 100% of them knew about it. Of course not many of them are 35 and not all are male, so maybe they don't count?
And my brother, who doesn't care about hockey, knew about this game. I know ESPN doesn't give a ****, but they will still mention that USA won gold.
