who cares about sports??

If team yellow wins, would it make every of the yellow team country citizens better? if it is red team would it make them better people?
if they lose, are they already lousier people?

armchair sports is best there is. enjoying when the others make the work.

I would call team winner, when they get home first, to be with their childs, spouses, friends and relatives without makin themselfs bruises or sweating and "fighting" for something which has no meaning in the end. it would not chance anything, but make themselfs and lots of people believe in something they are not in real. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The Winter Olympics!

The only way on Earth you could possibly ever get an attractive young lady to dress from head to delicately shod foot in spandex and attempt to go super-sonic on a tea tray live through a 4 mile long tube of ice live on T.V.

You can't make this stuff up!

I gotta go with the Finns. They have had pretty much no problems or distractions since coming to the games.

On paper, the Swedes definitely have the advantage in offense, but as seen in a lot of the other games, all it takes is one hot goalie to negate that advantage. Lundqvist has looked good this year in NY, but how much of that has been the way the (mainly Czech, how ironic is that? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif ) team has been playing in front of him? He's pretty young for this kind of pressure (but so was Patrick Roy in the '93 finals).

Speaking of goalies, Niittymaki has been impressive, too. Kiprusoff who? Lehtonen what? he's young, too, but has been so solid you have to wonder how good he'll be next Olympics! Teemu, Ollie and Saku have been really impressive offensively, but after that line there isn't much. Their injury problems haven't slowed them down one bit.

I look for a low-scoring game with few mistakes on either side.

Finland wins 2-1.

Since I have a gaggle of Finns and Swedes corralled here---let me ask a question which has I'm dying to get answered: was the I-15 Chato used in the Winter War? I am not referring to the I-15bis/I-152---I mean the original gull wing I-15. I saw an illustration of F19's Jacobi downing an I-15, but my sources suggest the I-15 had been almost completely taken out of service by the time of the Winter War. I'm asking because I'd like to build a model of the I-15 in the illustration!

You mean this one?

.. drawn by Bj¶rn Karlstr¶m

According to the best and really the only book about F19, F19 - En kr¶nika by Greger Falk, the I-15 was indeed in service on the Soviet side in Northern Finland anyway.

I have asked our Soviet friends quite many times about this, both in this forum and also in SimHQ. I know that SaQson is very sceptical ábout it's participation.

Yes, F19_Orheim, that is the very illustration I saw in Falk's book---and I instantly bought the 1:48 ski I-15 by Special Hobby! Fortified with your information, I now see I will have to do something else! Many thanks for the help!

Going to be very exciting game tomorrow, naturally as a Finn i'm with my own team, however history has shown many times Sweden's power and will to fight in rising from 1-5 to 6-5 victory, I sure hope it won't happen again (!) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

And Atleast for Finland, after all its the belowed Swedes on the opposing side usually gives them 110 % power + MW50, guess it is the same for the Swedes http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

The game starts on Sunday at 15.00 EET (14.00 Gmt +1)..
