congrats to canada for making it to the semis, by soundly beating norway this afternoon (even though norway looked like they were gonna put up a pretty good fight for the first bit...).
there were way too many sound-alikes in this game for me:
lars-erik spets ? or jason spezza ?
mattias olimb ? or mattias ohlund ?
i kept hearing miller and mcguire referring to "thomas maki," which thoroughly confused me. "did tömi mäki defect from finland to norway ??" i thought, at first, "or is this some other player altogether ??". i checked the rosters and couldn't FIND a "thomas maki," so turned my attention back to the game. the next time he was mentionned with the puck, i took note that he was #5. the next time i saw #5, i could tell that his last name wasn't as short as "maki."
ladies and gentlemen, i present you:
juha kaunismaki. (say it out loud)
[in trying to figure this out, i might add, i note that tömi mäki is RFA this summer, as is DVDG and adam pardy (among others). um, sutter's got some serious work to do....]
