Right... I was surprised though to find out that parts of Ontario seem to be Belarussian. :|

I mean, names like Kevin Lalande and Geoff Platt don't even strike me as Slavic.

Racism? :eh:

Just surprised that a couple of good ole Canadian lads choose to represent the only remaining dictatorship in Europe, and the only European nation to retain capital punishment. Doesn't really seem they have any other ties to the country than that they're contracted by Dynamo Minsk, is all. But hey, whatever floats their mercenary boats, I guess. Heck, a guy like Platt who even represented Canada internationally as a junior should be able to do better than that, eh? :eh:

Whatever. Vodka under the bridge, I guess. :drink:

Russians beat us 3-1.
Guess it was expected; they've looked great all tournament and have a star studded team with Ovechkin and Malkin leading the way. We have a bunch of also-rans and NHL rejects, with just the odd NHL addition.

Guess I will have to root for the Finns in the final. :|

So, at the end of the game Sweden's assistant coach Grönborg had a bit if a shouting match with Russia's head coach Oleg Znarok, and the camera's caught the latter making an international sign language death threat... :o



So, do you think he'll be coaching his team in the final? :|

Grönborg may want to hire someone to start his car from now on. ;)

Yeah, probably needs to check his brakes as well before hitting the road.
Considering Crimea and everything, I guess Russian threats must be taken seriously.
They're not kidding around. :|

Verdict is out: Znarok and Grönborg will both be suspended for the medal games today.

Guess Grönborg may have helped Improve Finland's chances for gold! :)

Sweden beat the Czechs 3-0 to claim the bronze.

Lol! They just announced that the winners will receive the world championship trophy from the hands of Vladimir Putin!? I mean, wtf?! This tournament is held in Belarus!

Putin seems to have a severe problem understanding where the borders of Russia are.
Well, I guess we already knew that.

I really really really hope the Finns win, and then when their captain receives the trophy he beats Putin over the head with it, and then they all jump him...! :lol:

:|

And to all security agencies snooping around here - this is obviously a joke, since I have no wish to see Finland nuked back to the stone age. But still. Ah, the imagery! 8-)

Bah, the Russians won. :hmmm:
Guess they deserved it. They had the best team and won all ten games they played.
Oh, well. There's always next year.

Rummy bangin' a Russian right now I bet.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."
