Danish Surprise

Denmark has made a surprisingly great start of the IIHF World Championship in ice hockey. It is normally one of the least good teams, often struggeling to stay in the Championship and not being relegated to the B championship. In the first game, they won against Finland, a team which is often considered a possible medal winner. In today's game, the Danes followed up by winning against the USA in overtime. Mum is not happy, American as she is, but I find it rather exciting that an underdog like Denmark may make a very good tournament. It is not that I believe the Danes will win any medals, but I sure hope they would. It would be a healthy reminder to everyone that it is not only the most common national teams that win. Go, Denmark!
