David Backes claim to Olympic fame

Postby ComradeT » Thu Feb 25, 2010 2:06 pm

From http://www.vancouver2010.com/olympic-news/n/news/afp-news/ice-hockey--canada-avenges-quarter-final-loss-to-russia_292700sF.html

That sets up a blood feud between the Americans and Finns. Finland won the silver medal in Turin but they had to fight their way through the US to get to the final.

Finland beat the Americans 4-3 in the quarter-finals and the game that included a brawl at the buzzer in which US forward David Backes pummelled defenceman Anssi Salmela, smashing the defenceman's nose to a bloody pulp.


I don't remember seeing that but reading about it made me all warm and fuzzy inside.

That was fun. I had not seen that before. My finnish isn't very good but I pretty sure they were saying Backes is a badass the whole time.

abc I checked the Finn to English translator and Backes does mean bad ass especially after today's rematch.

Keith must have a chicken farm because he sure does lay some eggs on this site.
