spyboy1 Posted January 3, 2004 Share Posted January 3, 2004 I was able to watch the Team USA vs. Team Finland game of the World Junior Championship on the NHL Center Ice package today and noticed something about the Team Finland jerseys that surprized me.Normally, they say "SUOMI" on them, as seen in this photo.But today, they were wearing jerseys that read "FINLAND" above the shield. First, I had never seen this version before, and second, thought that it was really odd that they would chose to wear this variation in Finland of all places, the one place you would expect to see them with the name of their own country in their own language, at home since they are the host country this year.Here's a pic from and earlier game against Canada.Is this a new version that reads "Suomi" across the bottom then? It must be fairly new if it is.JeffB Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
