Despite Finland traveling home at 7am here – there is at least one Finn still left in the tournament, that would be me 😉 Partly because I do enjoy basketball – and partly because I had booked my flights so that I am going home tomorrow (sounds better when I say that it’s for the […]

I know I’ve let all the Norwegian and Danish fans down by making them wait for this so long (sorry – had to take care of all the Finnish clients first – after all they paid my trip here).

It’s all a bit ‘comic-al’

Just so that it would not all be business – I decided to ask a ‘silly question’ from all the Finnish players here in Sweden, and caused them some head-ache with it. Some players answered it quickly and easily – for others, it took some time.. but we got there in the end. So have […]

Tredje dag in Sundsvall – Kanon!! So – the third day of the tournament, and a late start for it with it being Monday! Kolmas paiva Sundsvallissa – jos viikonloppuna minua piti hereilla myohaan juhlivat paikalliset – niin Sunnuntain ja Maanantain valinen you oli sitten aivan erilainen juttu, puolen yon aikaan oli hiljaista kuin tyyny-tehtaalla […]

Sunday’s evening game was so far the best that this tournament has had to offer – Norwegians had their first game in this years tournament and gave Swedes a right scare. At half-time Norway should have been ahead by few points – but the Swedes came and tied it at the last moments of the […]
