  2. My favorite is at 57 seconds when Salmela just belts out “AND HERE COMES HELLNER!!”

  5. Reminds me of Sochi. Here’s what I learned today about the most expensive ski jump in the world. It must be lovely there.

  6. Kind of a random question, but I remember having a Mr. Salmela as an art teacher at Washburn almost thirty years ago now, and I remember that he coached Nordic skiing somewhere in the district as well. By any chance are these two men related?
