Congratulation to the Finns and the Swedes

MySQL is a Finnish/Swedish founded company, so it's nice to congratulate both countries to this successful weekend!

On Saturday, Finland won the Eurovision Song Contest. That's fantastic - finally, Europe woke up and let a Hard Rock song ("Hard Rock Halleluja" from Lordi) win!

To explain the Eurovision Song Contest to Non-European readers, I'd like to quote Kaj Arnö: "that’s a yearly classic event going on since tens of years, which everybody watches but nobody admits watching.". That's usually true - but this years winning song literally ROCKS!

Today, Sweden won the Ice Hockey World Championships. It's the first time that the Olympic Champion wins the World Championships in the same year.

Happy celebrations!
