Congratulations to Finland!

You won!  We admit it, we Swedes.  In ice hockey VM tonight for those that don't know. This time you Finns didn't have to say 'if I only had more speed'. But you have only won VM once before, so you deserved it very much. For the record -  I love Finland, and especially surdegslimpa, Tove Jansson, and Arto Paasilinna. Some of my best friends are Finns. Really. :)  Nobody said it better than Monthy Python:

Dear Lena and the Family,

I highly appreciate your appreciation of the Finnish victory. As a person who has been watching these SWE-FIN hockey games since early 70´s I cannot agree more on your comment "this time it was our turn". It has been a big celebration in our country, apparently (based on TV images) also in the border region Tornio-Haparanda, where the night appears already completely white. Let's hope we will have a nice summer here in Nordern. - Ykä
