Missed the big game tonight. Raimo Helminen's last game wearing Team Finland jersey. And what a finish! Four seconds left and Raipe assists a goal, 6-1 against Czech Republic (appropriately Raipe's first even cap for Finland was against Checkoslovakia. Assist, not goal, that's Raipe all right. Mr. "I'd rather assist than score" Helminen. Any goalie in the Finnish Elite League could've seen that one coming, but not Duba. Who had played here few years ago. Brilliant and exactly as it should've been. A truly fitting end for truly magnificient career spanning six Olympic Games, countless tournaments and 331 caps for Finland.
But, alas! I missed the game. Important Finncon business. I believe we'll have some really good news when everything is sorted out. I hope and believe that both SF and anime fen will be pleased. (No, we're not going to separate them completely. Not that "good" news... :) )
We've also begun to stack up books to shelves. Sheesh, quite a number of them!
