When the Washington Capitals are defeated in the playoffs, everyone in DC becomes miserably miserable. We leave cranky comments on stories, kvetch on talk radio, and demand someone be held accountable. I’m sure some of that stuff happens in Sweden too, but take a look at this photo taken in Stockholm on Sunday night.
After Sweden fell 3-0 to Canada in the gold medal game (and had one of their best players suspended for using allergy medicine), the Tre Kronor, the country’s national emblem, as well as the Swedish word for “pride” was captured by a photographer super-imposed beautifully on the facade of the Ericsson Globe — one of the most famous hockey arenas in the country.
It makes me think – maybe we’re doing it all wrong. You know?
