1995 - Nevö Föget
20 years ago the Finnish national hockey team won its first WC gold medal in Stockolm. Its an insignificant event per se, but it was huge in Finland, who had long been in an economic depression. I mean Helsingin Sanomat even compared it to the election of Obama as president in '08. How innocent we all were. Time for nostalgia:

Same here. I remember watching the game with my brother and how excited we both were. For every goal we'd go running and high-fiving around the house Big Grin

Groups of boys in school would go around chanting "Suomi on uusi maailmanmestari" for weeks after.

Later my dad took me to see the team when they were touring around our parts. Got a couple of autographs. Smile
