GO GIRLS!

I'm not much of a sports fan but it did make me
smile when I noticed Finland's women's icehockey
team, nicknamed The Lionesses (after the
Coat of arms of Finland which is on their
jersey), beat their old adversaries
Russia 5-1 in their debut game
at the Vancouver Winter
Olympics on Sunday.

You go girls!

EDIT 26.2.2010: The Ladies come home with
Bronze medals after
beating Sweden 3-2.
