Finnish Hockey Fans Play on Frozen Baltic Sea

Friday January 17th, 2014


We don't know too much about this image, posted to Reddit by user habbahabba, except its brazen title "F--- pond hockey, sea hockey arena in Helsinki, Finland." Those are fighting words to most of Northern Canada, and will probably be returned in the form of beating in the Group B pool of the Winter Olympics. All I want to know, though, is whether you get an extra goal for shooting the puck onto the deck of an anachronistic sail boat.

In case you were wondering, it's 7 degrees Fahrenheit in Helsinki right now.
