    CONGRATS to the Fins. My understanding is Hockey is HUGE in Finland. At least way bigger than it is in the US.

    Well that said I'm a huge hockey fan. Not having TV inhibits my ability to follow other leagues however. :(

    When they beat Russia, I told a friend of mine that they were beating Sweeden hands down, he disagreed and long story short, I get a free sixer of beer.

    Yeah.. I heard that Helsinki has gone somewhat crazy - and this is late Sunday night! For me the Russia semifinal was the huge emotional rollercoaster, and the gold against Sweden is just icing on the cake. But as said, it's always special when Finland and Sweden meet in a hockey tournament, the rivalry is so fierce, so the meet-up being at the final is a dream game for both countries. And of course the best thing is not that Finland won by 6-1, it's that Sweden lost by 6-1 ;)
