A basketball sideshow in Helsinki

Dennis Rodman will play for a Finnish basketball team.

Actually, he has signed a contract to play a minimum of 10 minutes for Torpan Pojat, a Helsinki-based team in the Finnish professional league. The owner figures that he can increase his normal 2-3,000 attendance to about 8,000 with Rodman in the lineup, particularly since the game is scheduled on a night with no hockey game in town.

A marginal sideshow like Rodman finds a marginal professional team to pay him.

But please, let’s not call Finland a marginal country.

Unless, of course, it is a cold dark winter night with no hockey.

It's a great looking watch that fits well due to its replica watches sale large face and not an overly big size. Diesel's turn to sophistication was not without shading its wild side. The rolex replica sale is more polished no doubt but rugged nonetheless! The new Rollcage is sleek stainless steel in a simple, three-hand format. Its dial seems complex at first glance but has only the essentials marked-up, creating a very interesting dial pattern. The replica watches uk plays a crucial role in power dressing. The grey/blue combination creates a fake breitling gravely serious yet commanding feel; the rolex replica brushed gunmetal plating perfectly suiting the scenarios. The hublot replica uk makes casual and classy mesh into one.
