Well, I'd be crying in my beer but I'm at work and plus the odd group of guys they got for the US team was hard to root for anyway. Hockey has lost popularity in the past few years because of strikes and greed! And then they wouldn't even pay for plane tickets or hotels for the US tram members! It's definitely not like in 1980 when the amateur US team beat the Soviet Union.... those were the days! LOL - So I'll let Jouko bask in his glory for now!

i like it mo it looks really kool. but as soon as i opened the thumbnail and saw it big i have to admit i was maybe even a tad disappointed...it looked so great in the thumbnail but then the brick work just looked too fake. an image of an actual wall with more tonal range would really improve this i feel, or experiment with other things, maybe newspaper...regardless this is brilliant technique and i'm commenting more on personal taste. very good touch mo
