The Origin Of Iiro The Hero (And Other Finnish Things)

The Origin Of Iiro The Hero (And Other Finnish Things)

There is a lack of Finnish things on the Edmonton Oilers these days. In fact there was a lack of Finnish things on the Oklahoma City Barons roster since the departure of Teemu Hartikainen. The grand five years that the Barons have been in existence they have managed to position seven Baltic Sea lovers in the lineup, and seven has always been God’s perfect number. Toni Rajala, Antti Tyrvainen, Teemu Hartikainen, and to a lesser extent Lennart Petrell, Niko Hovinen, and Frans Tuohimaa have given opponents Helsinki Hell and caused a frenzied hot flash to Barons fans far and wide. The swoon-worthy-ness of Finnish hockey players has always been a tiny obsession of mine, and it only grows as the days go by.

This year the Oklahoma City Barons have introduced their latest Finnish Phenom and his name is Iiro, Iiro the Hero.

Barons Struggle To Play Full Game, Lose To San Antonio

The Rampage and the Barons were both coming off losses the night prior to meeting on Saturday in the heart of Oklahoma City.

Workin’ For The Weekend: Oklahoma City Comes Home For Two “I’m Gonna Be Strong”

Workin’ For The Weekend: Oklahoma City Comes Home For Two “I’m Gonna Be Strong”

I was born in 1980. That same year the world discovered Cyndi Lauper before she was Cyndi Lauper. Nowadays, when perusing VH1, you might stumble upon Ms. Lauper every now and again, and think to yourself, “Who is this woman, and what happened to her?”. At 61 years of age she still balances the fine line between art and oddity not only publicly, but privately as well. This mirrors her career spanning nearly 35 years.

To be totally honest, I often find myself singing Lauper tunes. They are heavily crafted to be ear worms of the highest level. For that, the writing and execution of some of Lauper’s greatest hits should truly be lauded. “Girls Just Want To Have Fun”, “She Bop”, “Time After Time”, “True Colors”, and even that crazy ‘Goonies’ song point to the highly skilled writing of a truly smart human being.
