I’m currently in Finland on a quick trip to take care of some paperwork and attend a close friend’s bachelorette party. Turns out timing could not have been more perfect when yesterday at the finale Finland beat Canada 3-1 and won the Ice Hockey World Championship tournament. This is the third time it’s ever happened, and the first I’ve been able to join in on the celebrations in Helsinki. Everyone gathers into the Market Square in the city center to celebrate together, and the atmosphere is incredible. I’m very lucky I happened to be here for this, since no one in Scotland really cares for ice hockey and I usually watch it alone.
Here’s a Natalie plush someone on the EBF Discord commissioned from an Etsy seller.
