Hi guys. I'm typing this from Jesenice, Slovenia. That's Anze Kopitar's hometown - in case you didn't already knew that.
My English probably won't be brilliant, but you'll understand me, that's for sure.
I wanted to tell the world on what's going on here in Slovenia.
Now, Slovenia - being a tiny, little country, squeezed between Italy, Austria, hungary and Croatia - with entire population of 2 millions - really went nuts over this last few weeks. Anze Kopitar
is in any case the very first Slovenian hockey player to play for any NHL team. And what a role he has in it!!!
I'm coming from his hometown, called Jesenice. That's a small town, bordering Italy and Austria. Everyone here is nuts about hockey and our team was the most successful team in former Yugoslavia. Since Slovenia declared independence in 1991 - our hockey team of course continued to be the best by far also in a "new county". That's where Anze was born and raised.
People are gathering in Hrusica (that's a microscopic village a mile away from Jesenice) to watch the NHL Finals outside - there's a big screen on a soccer pitch and some 1500 fans gathered last night to support Anze and his Kings. Unfortunately, win Nr.4 failed to occur and even bigger crowd is expected on Saturday night. It was , afterall, a working week night last nigh (the game started at 2.am local time) and many had to go to work right after the game. But on Saturday - hey, there won't be enough space for everybody, I think...
Go, Kings, GO!!!
