Yeah Flyers!

Congratulations to the Philadelphia Flyers for winning their first round series over the Washington Capitals. I had to pull for the Flyers for two reasons: 1. They are my son's favorite hockey team and 2. The Capitals beat the Carolina Hurricanes, keeping the Hurricanes out of the playoffs this year.
Since the Hurricanes aren't in the playoffs, they are able to send a ton of players to the World Championships. Maybe the Hurricanes' wives and girlfriends need to use my Countries of the World Template Series templates because there are quite a few countries being represented just from our organization.

For the second straight year, eight players will be representing Carolina
at the IIHF World Championships, located this year in the Canadian cities of
Quebec City and Halifax. The games begin on May 2 and run until the gold
medal game on May 18.Canadians Eric Staal and Cam Ward will be joined by Ray
as they attempt to defend their gold medals from last year’s tournament. Also playing in the event are Tim Gleason (United States), Tuomo Ruutu (Finland), Niclas Wallin (Sweden), Dennis Seidenberg (Germany) and goaltending prospect Daniel Manzato (Switzerland). ~Carolina Hurricanes.com

So, good luck to all the Hurricanes players representing their own countries, but GO USA!!! And also GO FLYERS since my son is home between the spring and summer semesters right now and we have to listen to goan and moan when the Flyers don't win! LOL
