The NHL (National Hockey League) season is on again, after a few months break.
My favorite Danish fun fact is an anecdote that is a link between two of my fav things in life; Denmark and hockey.
On February 12th 1949, in Stockholm, Canada defeated Denmark with a final score of 47-0. (/o\) To people unfamiliar with hockey, this might be of no interest at all. But when you know that a hockey game is played over 3 periods of 20 minutes each, the score becomes a real joke! (Really, how can you score a goal every 1.28 minutes??? Did Denmark know they were allowed to have a goaler in front of the net?)
I often take a minute to imagine the scene… How incredibly discouraging it must have been to play the last minutes… I think that there should be a rule saying that when a team has a 20 goals lead on the opponent, the game simply stops!
But hey! You have the Viking spirit or you don’t… These Danish players fought until the very last minute! Go Danes!!
