Hockey - The miracle could come true!

Hopp schwyz, hopp schwyz!

(Hmm, a Sweden vs. Switzerland final might finally manage to make many US Americans aware that this are really two distinct countries. Hope, all the ones I met travelling and had to argue about this fact are hockey fans and believe me by now )


I really thought quicksand was going to be a much bigger issue in my life when I was little

Yea I know, US and Canada are not sending the "best" possible team... does anyone care at all about the world championship at yours? Follow the games?

First silver in 78 years!

Always cool, if the team of the host country wins. All night opening in Sweden. Congrats

I don't really know anyone who cares much about it. Like snowklinger said, the NHL playoffs are happening right now.. and the only other time I see people excited about hockey is during the Olympics.

Yes, here in the home of hockey, we DO know about this tournament.

Congratulations on a very impressive showing!

The Swiss national team has shown dramatic improvement in the past decade.

of course we know theyre different! Sweden is where all the rich americans put their money. Switzerland on the otherhand is a very interesting but odd country.

Switzerland was for banking. Sweden was for gorgeous women.
