Half the game is mental; the other half is being mental.

Helsinki, 9 degrees

Make a bowl of popcorn, take a good position on the sofa and ready, steady, go - IIHF 2012 has started in Helsinki! Finally the awaited world championships in ice hockey - the most beloved sport in Finland - have begun! Hartwall Arena has never looked this good! I'm not even usually a ice hockey girl, but world championships are a must!

The mascot for the championships is no other than Hockey Bird!

Finnish ice hockey players are called lions! Go lions, go!
