    I'll go with a 2-2 tie. I think the U.S. is the superior team, but it's tough to call these early international games.

    4-3 or 3-2 is the result I'm thinking is most likely..

    but let's go out and make a prediction that'd have nice odds at the bookies.. lets say..

    Finland 5-3 USA

    *damn, why is it so hard to type with mozilla? My keyborad seems to be running at like 120kph while the mozilla screen is advancing at like 80kph..

    Umm, scorers.. Jokinen with 2, and Pirnes and a defender, how about Karalahti for Finland..
    for the US, hmm.. Park, hmm.. actually i can't recall US players in their roster from memory and too lazy to look..

    Nope, not a problem.. adware/spyware that is. None on computer.

    installed smooth mouse wheel scrolling add-on + google tool bar add-on and it works much better now.

    None of those problems on IE (here) or at my other Mozilla sessions (work)

    should porbably update to the latest patch soon, but lazy now..

    *glad Noronen is starting goalie, Markkanen was too shaky*

    Finns win 3-1 or 4-2. Although the team is pretty weak this year...

    Naw, I don`t think that`s realistic.






    Salo will probably score 6 and Ruutu only 14. ;)

    Finland has always played badly in their first games. Hopefully they won't this time.

    Finland 4 (Jokinen 2, Hentunen, Pärssinen)
    -
    USA 1 (Drury)

    And Finland outshoots USA 35-18

    Even that seems unlikely since Ruutu is only the 13th forward.

    what a beautiful avatar

    USA is leading 2-0, 3 places for goal 2 in. No surprises but still weak performance from the Leons.

    finland, finland, finland the country where I want to be

    pony trekking or camping, or just watching tv

    finland, finland, finland it's the country for me

    you're so near to Russia, so far from Japan, quite a long way from Cairo, lots of miles Vietnam

    finland, finland, finland the country where I want to be

    eating breakfast or dinner, or snack lunch in the hall

    finland, finland, finland has it all

    you're so sadly neglected and often ignored, a close second to Belgium when going abroad

    finland, finland, finland, the country where I quite want to be

    your mountains so lofty, your treetops so tall

    finland, finland, finland

    FINLAND HAS IT ALL!
