You might have understood already but I love watching The Winter Olympics. As a man born in Scandinavia I think this is born into our DNA. If you beside that grew up in Sweden playing ice hockey it’s a sure thing. So, I’m suer excited and I will be watching quite some Olympics within the next couple of weeks. So I just couldn’t write about it. Here I just had to share some thoughts.
There are a few things that is more important than other. First of all the ice hockey tournament. I’m a big fan and for me who loves hockey its the greatest hockey tournament of them all. However, this year is the first time in many years that the NHL stars won’t be allowed to join there teams. Its a bit sad but despite this I think this fact will play to Team Sweden’s advantage. Because we got so many players that have been on the edge to play in the NHL but have chosen to play in Europe instead. Both the KHL (The Russian League and the second best league in the world) and that plays in the SHL (The Swedish Hockey League, the third best league in the world). This makes Team Sweden in my eyes the second best team in the tournament on paper after OAR (Team Russia, that isn’t allowed to plays as Russia). But the Russians often has problems to play as a team and that might work to Team Sweden’s advantage. Of course Finland, Czech Republic and Swiss will be dangerous contenders as well but I really think we got a good chance here. Super exited about this one.
Second focus is the cross country skiing and after living in Norway for many years this is important and very closely connected to bragging rights and survival while being in Norway. The most importation thing here to beat the Norwegians for the Swedes and for me (and for the Norwegians the most important to beat the Swedes. Neighbor rivalry). But the first day of the Olympics Charlotte Kalla won a gold medal and that was a great start!
Then there is some many cool and fun events to watch besides these two but this will be a great couple of weeks. Lets go Sweden!
I’ve found the “old” tv series The Allegiance on the public tv channel in Sweden which is a tv serie from 2015. And I’m totally sold at it.
Russian spies, CIA and FBI agents. A classic set up for a spy thriller but this one is with twists and turns that I had not expected. Honestly I’ve spent more time watching this series today than I would like to admit but now I’ve seen it all and surprise, I thought it was great.
Have you seen it? Leave a comment and say what you thought about it.
By the way attached the trailer.
The last few days I watched the mini tv serie Arm on Netflix. I’ve seen it earlier but didn’t remember it. It’s a story about a knight Templar. But it’s a it only about a knight it’s also about parts of Seedish history and love. It’s all based on the books about Arn written by the Swedish author Jan Guilliou. Books a really recommend. However it’s not only a a great story it’s probably one of the biggest Scandinavian productions in modern time. I didn’t recall that is was that many famous actors in the movie but it’s truly full of Swedish tv and movie stars for example Stellan Skarsgård, Gustaf Skarsgård, Joel Kinneman and many more. Impressive if you as me all from scenery, actors, photo all is a real good here.
Warmly recommend it!
I know I might be among the last once to start watching mad men but now I’ve started. To be honest I’ve started once before and quit after one episode but tonight I’ve seen two episodes. Kind of like it so far but not hooked yet. So pretty curious to see if I will get hooked on it. Only heard good things about it and the serie looks good, can’t say anything about that. So have you seen it? What do you think about it?
So a while back my second cousin recommended this tv series to me and today I’ve been trying to relax after work and seen a few episodes.
For you who not know the serie it’s a comedy cop serie that take place in a precinct in Broklyn. And usually the cop comedy series are not that goo but this is. In fact it’s a real goo comedy serie and I like it a lot.
I would grade it 4 out o 5 points.
So the weekend is getting closer and me and G will have different plans tomorrow so we went out and had dinner tonight. Tried a new place called burger terrasse here in Oslo and a review is coming.
After a nice dinner we went home and did some must do things and saw Million dollar listing San Francisco. Quite like the show.
See you soon again.
So today have I had board meeting, worked, seen a TEDx talk and seen the season final of True Detective season two. A lot of screens but a got a short walk in the Oslo rain at least where I could call my grandma and my dad and gather my thought a little bit. No work out today either but at least I’ve only been eating healthy and today there where Indian wrapped on the menu in my home and G had dinner for me which I really appreciate. Often its me tat make dinner here at home. Now it’s time to read a bit and then sleep. What have you done today? Interested to hear what you’re doing.
