About sofistes.net

This blog is a way for me to collect interesting stuff into one place. I'm not planning on making this a confession booth of any sort, just post random interesting web sites if I feel the need to comment on them (otherwise I just add them to my del.icio.us page) and comment on other stuff that is worth it (books, TV programs, games, CD's etc).

Knowing myself I doubt I will be updating this too often but we'll see...

Another year, another regular season win

Deep Thoughts and Shallow RamblingsPosted by Marko Poutiainen Friday, March 02 2007 23:23:57

My local team, Kärpät Oulu, for whom I have a season ticket, won the regular season in the Finnish Elite League for the third year running, easily. Of course this didn't mean squat last season when the surprise package of Ässät Pori beat us in the semi-finals. This was largely down to the fact that the team never really got into the playoff gear. Sadly, lately it has looked a lot like last season in this respect.

This worry didn't stop me from buying a playoff ticket that lets me see all the home playoff matches for 267 euros. So hope they get into that gear. There are still two matches to play in the regular season even though the last home match was yesterday which is a good time to try to improve the game. One of the matches is actually against Ässät who haven't been doing nearly as well as last season. In fact this season has been a total disaster for the loosing finalists as they are languishing second-to-last in a fourteen team series and have lost the chance to make the playoffs a long time ago. At least their victory against KalPa Kuopio yesterday meant they won't have to face the humiliation of finishing rock bottom after their dream season.

Incidentally, NHL.com run a very good article on Kärpät on their website just recently.
