    Hey there.

    Do you guys have any special habbits before the game.

    I myself:

    1. I go Sauna before Finland games
    2. After Sauna I take something cool to drink
    3. I must have chips or popcorns during the game
    4. At the second intermission I prepare myself 2 delicious breds.

    The thing I like most about Finland - the Saunas and the beer! :D

    I don't have a sauna, but this is pretty much how it goes

    1) Half hour before the game - browsing the web, looking at the line ups etc
    2) Watching the first period
    3) 1st intermission: eating dinner with my GF, putting a "snus" under my lip and checking in on the GDT at hfboards
    4) Watching the second period
    5) 2nd intermission: checking in on the GDT at hfboards, putting a "snus" under my lip
    6) Watching the third period
    7) Discussing the game at hfboards

    It's become pretty much a habit :)

    Turn on the t.v.

    Curse at the lack of coverage.

    Turn off the t.v.

    I don't really do much to prepare for a game. I do like to have the latest edition of the hockey news handy while watching a game.

    The Saturday night game is the one I wait and wait for and never miss. As a sleepy teen I wake up on Saturday usualy fairly late in the morning. Then I heat have breakfast/lunch and then wait. Kill time, watch some Tv, surf the net, but really all it is is waiting for the Saturday night game. I tell my friends not to call me because I won't go out Saturdays. They just don't understand...

    All in all Saturday is usualy a pretty lazy, pathetic and uneventful day until 630-7 PM.

    I usually try to get drunk before or during the game. I have been very succesfull in these games. Of course sauna is needed...I usually go after the game with possible drinking buddies...usually put the sauna on after 2 periods so it's ready after 3rd.

    no pregame ritual for me, I just watch the game.. when the game is on, and the team I cheer for (either Russia or the Maple Leafs) is playing, I can't even eat or drink, I'm just way too tense for that unless it's a blowout..

    I think I'm gonna go mental tomorrow during the quarter final game..

    Can you tell me what a snus is? Sounds like some kind of drug.
