Proud to be a Finn!

Today has definitely been a good day to be a finn! I haven't really been following the Sotchi Olympics all that closely but somehow I have managed to see every victorious medal-moment for our national teams. And today there were several! First the women's cross-country team sprint win silver and then the men's team of the same sport win gold! Wow, you should've heard how my dad was yelling at our television "Jaksaa jaksaa! Saatana se tulee kovaa... ei mee ohi, ei mee ohi!" .There's really no point in trying to translate that into English either, it just wouldn't sound the same! And then against all odds the Finnish Hockey team beat Russia on their home turf in front of Putin and therefor will meet Sweden in the semifinals on Friday...
So it's been a day filled with sports and victory! Just had to share this picture of Vladimir Putin after the game, there's just something about it that makes me really happy! :D
