Some funny story from L'hammer...

    Haven't seen too many anecdotes here, so this will be one!!

    This happened just a few days ago in Lillehammer. The Russian
    hockey team is already having the breakfast when the Finnish players
    come for the same purpose. Some of the Russians comments the arrival
    of the Finns: " And there comes that BLUE MACHINE..."   8-)

    As you know, the Russian hockey team is called 'the Red Machine'.
    At least formerly they were something like that, but nowadays the
    team is just very mediocre: In Lillehammer we defeated them twice,
    first 5-0 and then in the Bronze game 4-0 !!!!

    The anecdote was presented on Finnish TV in that way that I believe
    it might be authentic!!  Even the name of the manager of the Finnish
    hockey team was connected with the case... He was said to know some
    words of Russian.

Yeah well, he might understand some words of russian when he hears them but
obviously he don't know what irony is. :)
