Olympics: Hockey

The first event we had tickets to was to women’s hockey.  This was the much anticipated match between the very blond Finnish team and the very unblond Chinese team.  We haven’t lived in Canada long enough to appreciate much more than the gladiatorial aspects of the game, which were strikingly absent from this event.  We were rooting for China, as were a surprisingly large number of other people, but the Finns won handily despite a good effort from the Chinese, whose goalie looked absolutely overwhelmed by the size of her protective gear.
