BAH sad

Missed the fin-swe game since I was at work. I guess I'll console myself that at least, according to reports, the better team won (yeah I know, works every time right?)

Any we got our work cut out for us tomorrow. The American team this time around isn't their formerly typical bunch of rookies who couldn't point out on a world map where they are and who think they deserve to be declared winners just for turning up. none

I like to look at the human self-model as a neurocomputational weapon, a certain data structure that the brain can activate from time to time.

I realised that Canada is going to win the gold medal in hockey after I saw the game between Canada and Finland.

Sweden and the US are good, but Canada is epic.

No it won't be a cakewalk. But I do think that Team USA is now badly shaken enough that they won't have any arrogance to fuel anything. Team Finland can beat them if they don't let up with getting shots on net. Quick, their netminder, is amazing, but as was proven today, he can be defeated even if it's just by a very slim and very tight margin.

I very much appreciate the vote of confidence, Karl!! Big Grin I don't think this match up with Sweden is going to be a cakewalk either mind you. Team Sweden is packed with NHLers. It should be a good game though. Smile

For me personally, the win today however was as good as winning gold. ;)

Today I watched another episode of the German slapstick comedy "Epic Fail Sotchi 2014". Rest assured that some heads are gonna roll in Merkelland after the Games. After all the government is the main sponsor of all these slapstick comedians who have nice paper-pushing jobs in the civil service.

What do you mean? About the doping or something else? Because Germany's been having strong games at Sochi.

The German performance has been by far the worst in over 50 years. Epic failures, butthurt and lament whereever you look. The doping case is just the icing on the shitcake.

Congratulations Finland!! Teemu was beaming and so he should have been! Smile

Now let's hope we do as well against Sweden!

Yep, there is still some wattage left in the 43-year old Finnish Flash. This was just one more night to remember when warming those creaky ol' bones in a rocking chair by the fireplace. Big Grin

Seriously though, what a magnificent exit. The title of "greatest Finnish player ever" had been in the bag for a while already, but still.

I wanted to see a hat trick (which the team was trying to give him). I lost a bet with a friend. He said before the tournament that Teemu's too old and will suck. So I said I bet he'll score five goals or more. He got 4. If only he had played the first game against Austria...

Looks like I am never wrong, also in a sport than I know little about. The Canadian team was perfect.
