My faith in hockey is restored. The Finnish team managed to do a MacGyver and, using the Slovakian team as leverage, they were able to duct tape their pride back together again. Apart from the absolutely horrible first period in the USA game, the Finnish team has done okay in this year’s Olympics. Especially considering the fact that they’re actually old enough to have fathered the US team.
As the Finnish team goes into not-so-early retirement, I am going to celebrate the bronze with this awesome picture of the President of Finland. Tarja Halonen knows what’s important in life; keeping Russia happy – and hockey.
Now all that’s left to do is to look forward to tonight’s game. Two things I can say for certain: Either Canada or the USA will win. And it will be good. *
