Team Finland just started their games at this years IIHF WC.

Usually, that'd mean the highlight of hockey season starting for me. This year, not so much. For one thing, I'm much more emotionally invested in the Wild's playoff run (even if I'm not exactly holding onto any hopes of them making it to the second round; pessimism is a long cultured survival mechanisim born out of years of cheering for teams that only ever lose).

But even if I wasn't, there's been just so much off-ice bullshit involving the tournament and our team this year for the past couple weeks or so, that I just feel like any and all exitment I might've had has been sucked right out.

But I guess I'm watching anyway. If not for any other reason, than to for once see Joni Ortio play for a team I cheer for.
