The men’s hockey tournament in Sochi isn’t set to get underway until later this week, so the players at the Winter Games have to keep themselves busy until they hit the ice in pursuit of gold.

And, finally, here is Finland’s impressive trio of goaltenders – Antti Niemi of the San Jose Sharks, Kari Lehtonen of the Dallas Stars, and Tuukka Rask of the Boston Bruins – all striking fear into the hearts of other Sochi bicycle gangs.
Clip a couple baseball cards to those wheels and we might have to hand out the gold medal before the tournament even starts.[reddit] Powered by Sidelines
