Ice Hockey!

%(sane) “Bach! Fuck, yeah yeah yeah” % as “the philosopher said.”: At 12.55 GMT, the BBC is showing live coverage of the Olympic ice hockey final. Even better, it stars Sweden and Finland. In each country, they will be preparing in their different traditional manners, the Swedes settling down with herring and six packs of beer, the Finns with their six packs of Vodka …

Sweden won, 3-2.

    Wimp. Will you trash someone’s Nokia if the Finns win?

    In the end, Sweden won 3-2 after I switched to Armagnac. Cold tea was never going to win this match.

    I like the huge comments box. Complaints to the usual address

    I’ll bet it wasn’t _hors d’age_, though.

    You channelling HST again?

    For your information, the hasidic reggae artiste is one “Matisyahu”: and there are some bonkers videos floating around the net of him giving it plenty in gigs.

    I don’t think one small glass of Armagnac would be enough for HST to clean his teeth with, thanks. But ice hockey is almost the only team sport I love watching. You can’t often see what’s happening with the puck, any more than you can watch the ball with cricket — perhaps it’s an attraction of football that the ball is always clearly visible — but the movement of the players is so fast and graceful, while their courage is remarkable.
