Too bad Sweden didn't win the final ... I think as a Finn I'm not supposed to root for the Swedish hockey team
(and ofcourse I was disappointed that Finland lost to Sweden in the semifinals) but since Finland was not in the final, I was hoping for Sweden to win .. (congrats to all the Canadians, well deserved Olympic Gold)
Sweden, or any of the Scandinavian countries, would be nice places to visit. I've been watching a serial documentary in the last few weeks about the history of the Vikings! Very interesting history of them and that region of the world.
It appears that the Vikings were the first white visitors to North America, hundreds of years before Christopher Columbus, as evidenced by the remnants of one of their settlements in Newfoundland Canada.
...and congratzzzz to Finland for winning the Bronze medal....
It would have been ESPECIALLY rewarding considering who they knocked OUT...!!!
Personally, I was looking forward to a Canada / USA final, as beating them Yankees would have been One Tasty Meatball....
