  1. Go Team Finland! Bäckström play your heart out. Any word on if Nitty will ever play? I like Nitty, and wanted him here.
  2. I read or heard somewhere that Gold is more important to your nation than the Cup. That is awesome that you have passion for your players. Trust me, I am probably the hardest on Pitkanen. He gets no free passes from me. There are games that I will say dang it Joni, with another word used instead of dang. There are games where I will say a goal was all on him. So, I will probably fit in great over there. LOL He is a very nice guy though, as are all the Finns on our team, and I'm sure the others are as well. I think that one Belarus goal was partially on him for not telling the forward pressure was right behind him. Like I said, hopefully he improves his next game.
  3. You are not telling me anything that I haven't already run across. I will agree your language is hard, but if I can get some phrases down, I should be okay. At least with how I am learning comes with a CD that has people speaking the words in Finnish, so I can get the pronuciation correct. LOL You're not a geek...I am a geek for learning a language I will rarely learn, but it is a challenge. I'm enjoying it. Now, that was a geek statement. LOL
  4. [quote name='v1atlantis wrote: GhoulieGirl']I agree, I think Joni was nervous. Maybe next game he will play better. He does get better the more he plays, maybe he just needed to get one game under him and know what is expected of him. Same way with his first every play off race with Philly. He didn't know what to expect, so next game should be better for him. He can quarterback the offense. Ruu is Ruu...glad to see his physicality coming back. We love those hits he does. I think he does. It was his fourth game in national team. ? Anyway, i was a little dissapointed in him , because i expected him to score highlight reel goals here and give a magical pass there. After that he should have punished those Belarussians with a bone crushing hit. So thats just my fault , expecting maybe tad too much. The passing yes, he can do that, but highlight reel goals, no. He has a great shot from the point and it should go in more than it does. He can make those passes to Jussi since they have played together for so long. Maybe a another practice will get him used to his team mates tendencies. There's not much time to adjust in the Olympics. Joni is my favorite player, but he is not free of my criticism. LOL
  5. Thank you much, or kiitos paljon, if my Finnish is correct. (Yes I'm trying to learn. LOL)

  7. OJ got the first and Hagman got the second both on the power play. WTG Team Finland! Shots in the first were 17-2 in favor of Finland. WOO HOO!!!!
  8. [quote name='v1atlantis wrote: GhoulieGirl']We are still waiting on ticket packages to be offered by the Canes organization, but as soon as they do, I'm getting mine. I'm really hoping to meet some of you guys from the board while I'm there. Okay, I love the guitar in that song. That opening melody is awesome! guess I'll be getting on itunes tonight. LOL I really like this song. Yes Portisfreak, you got me hooked. LOL You´ll meet me there for sure. Amorphis is very good. They take their lyrics from our national epic poem Kalevala. If you´re looking to understand us finns , i strongly recommend that you read it. From there you can find out that we don´t need guns and swords to destroy our enemy. We just simply sing them to swamp. http://www.finlit.fi/kalevala/index.php?m=162&l=2Thanks for the link. I've saved it to my favorites. I can read this during my lunch break. I do have a question though, is this a book I can order from say like Borders or Barnes and Noble, or is it just on this site?

  10. Just got through watching those, and as we would say here when Ruutu does his thing "RUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!"We don't boo, we RUU!!! 2 hours and counting for the first Finnish game. Go Team Finland!!!
  11. I needed a warning for that. LOL! You do realize that my eyes are burned from that picture. LOL You know he doesn't even make Finnish blue look good. LOL
  12. Baby step to 3:00, baby step to 3:00! LOL I've been waiting all week for today. Come on Finns let's go!
  13. In person, he can be scary. LOL I firmly believe Jussi should be there with Joni and Tuomo. I'm not Jalonen, so I can only hope he knows what he's doing.
  14. I don't dispute that Jussi is a good looking man. The Jokinen we were talking about being ugly and keeping cameras away from was Olli Jokinen. Completely different Jokinen. Check our messages, no where was it mentioned that Jussi was ugly. Now Olli Jokinen on the other hand is another story.
  15. They are Finnish? Wow, I didn't know that. Loved their Metallica covers.
  16. LOL...now that you mention it, he does have a pumpkin head. ugly the great pumpkin head. I like the sounds of that.
  17. [quote name='v1atlantis wrote: GhoulieGirl wrote: v1atlantis']No, we are more like heavymetal rednecks from hell, with boatloads of slavic melancholy. Gotcha. I can't find much Finnish music though. Got a couple of Finnish bands, more of the main stream ones. Well End of You isn't that main stream and neither is Ember's Flame. Maybe I will hear something that I like when I'm there and pick it up. http://www.metalfromfinland.com/ Thanks for the link. I see a couple of bands I already have, like H.I.M. and The 69 Eyes. I guess The 69 Eyes really aren't main stream either. LOL Can't wait to check the others out. Thanks a bunch!
  18. I agree, you can't have Joni, but we do have Corvo you can take. After all, he's on the last year of his contract and he can move the puck.
  19. Gotcha. I can't find much Finnish music though. Got a couple of Finnish bands, more of the main stream ones. Well End of You isn't that main stream and neither is Ember's Flame. Maybe I will hear something that I like when I'm there and pick it up.
  20. I was heart broken to hear that Jussi wasn't going. I had a good luck in the Olympics poster for Ruutu and Pitkanen. Should have had Jussi's name on there too. Then you won't get upset when I refer to Olli Jokinen as Ugly Jokinen. I keep my camera away from him.
  21. I was the one in the Pitkanen jersey. Sporting two Finnish posters. It's not the newer one, but it's still a Finland jersey. I would love another one with the newer design on it. Maybe in the off season.
  22. Does anyone know if the game will be televised on the internet? I would love to be able to watch it from work, or at least have it going on in the back ground.
  23. [quote name='v1atlantis wrote: pannumon'] The Finnish style is not to tell you good things about our country, keep this in mind while reading. The weather in Helsinki in October is terrible. It is dark, 5-10 Celsius-degrees (40-50 F-deg.), you don't be seeing the sun at all. Also (as a native) I think there's not much to see in Helsinki. Everything is smaller in Europe than in North America and Helsinki is relatively expensive place (depends on the exchange rate between Euros and USD, of course). However, if you just want to discover the life in here, this is a very good opportunity. October is also a good time to see some landscape in Lapland (Northern Finland; one should probably go there in September already). There are also good things about Finland: The general infrastructure in Finland works very well, the customer service is good, people are honest and helpful (but you have to ASK for help if you need it). Everybody in major cities speaks (or at least understands) English, but if you know some words in Finnish, it is very much appreciated. If you happen to be a celebrity, you might be disappointed, because everybody gets the same service in Scandinavia. It may be hard to find real luxus stuff (service etc.) in Finland, but in general where ever you go, there really should not be anything to complain about. Finland in general is not a bad place to be. And yes, it is very easy to get to the arena, it's one train stop from the city center (all the trains stop on that station). If there will be games against Finnish teams, there will be some in Helsinki and then most probably in Tampere or perhaps Oulu, both nice towns (210 000 and 130 000 inhabitants, ~160 and ~500 km to North from Helsinki, respectively). Information about the arena can be found at http://www.hartwall-areena.com/ Information about Helsinki can be found at http://www.helsinki.fi/en/index.html Information about Finland can be found at http://finland.fi/ and http://visitfinland.com/ If you have any questions, I am glad to answer. Also I would love to meet people from this forum in Helsinki. Maybe that is why no one wants to come here. Damn those polar bears that roam the streets, yearning for raw human flesh to eat. Yes , actually maybe i was a little too positive in my introduction of Helsinki. Here comes the reality. Finnish people are rude , ugly and fat. We never smile to anyone, and if we by some mistake do, people run away because our dental hygiene is poor, as is our hygiene all together. The sun never shines here so we are very pale and we have humanoid-like eyes, with which we stare into nothingness, while roaming this agonizing road to oblivion. Summer is very brief here, and everytime we seem to miss it because our state of hibernation is too deep. So we never wake up completely, we live in a kind of a dream world. That is how are we , the finns , and our nation of suffer. Infrastructure here is very DDR like, Working fine, but everyhings bleak , here´s nothing to see. All of our traditions are based on losing battle with glory , that is why we never win anything. ( It comes from the TALVISOTA) So this is more accurate description about us and our poor nation. And by the way, we do not want any foreign people coming here messing our self-pity and egoism with their sunny smiles and cheerful attitude. ROFL!!! You sure you aren't a bunch of Goths? If so, I will fit in perfectly. LOL It's great to have you guys here. I'll make sure to keep my smiling to a minimum while I'm there. I may steal a polar bear or two. wonder if I can get them on the plane back.
  24. Tervetuloa Mironov! You should hear my Finnish. LOL Your English is much better than my Finnish. I know just enough to be dangerous. Although I haven't learned to ask where's the bathroom. LOL Maybe that should have been my first phrase. I can't wait to meet some of you from Helsinki when I come. I'm so excited about this.
