Suomi has a good hockey team, Kurri use to play for them did he not?
Yea, our team is pretty good. Especially as we are a very small nation. I'm not that much into hockey, but I do watch Olympic games and World Champioships. And yes, Jari Kurri definetly has played for Finland. Nowadays he's the GM of our team. One of the legends of hockey.
Can't believe I missed this post, perhaps because of the racist undertones. Anyways, I know Kurri played for Finland but I remember seeing him in a Suomi jersey, whether or not thats the national team I don't know but I do remember a blue Suomi jersey specfically, perhaps with a lion on it. I'm a huge Kurri fan dating back to the early 80's Oiler Dynasty. :)
Hahah, now I understand why you had to ask if Kurri has played for Suomi. Suomi means Finland in our own language ;)
And our crest (if that is the right word) has a golden lion with a sword on its hand, so you remember right - Kurri has played in a blue Suomi jersey with a lion on it.
