Finnish Hockey

I'm Back again!  It's been a few days since I've written.  It's been action packed and the weather has been really good compared to the first 4 or 5 days here so I've spent more time outside.  I've been riding my bike (Aliisa's dad's bike actually), walking and even went for a run through the forrest at night.  It's not dark though as the paths are all lit up.  There were quite a few people enjoying the park.

Anyways ...........

Last thursday we went to a hockey game between two local Finnish teams - Jokerit and HIFK.  It was the opening game of the season and the fans were really into it.  The sections behind the nets were were dedicated to either Jokerit or HIFK fans.  The Jokerit fans were the craziest.  They had flags, all the gear of course and they chanted pretty much the whole game.  Like soccer fans at a hockey game.  I guess they had some influence because Jokerit won 5-3.  After having gone to this game and having so much fun Aliisa had a look to see if there were any games on while in Stolkholm and so we are going to watch DIF and AIK play as part of the Swedish Elite League!!!  Can't Wait!!!
