Meh.  This is what Finnish hockey announcers always sound like.  Nothing at all unusual here (for a Finn).

Nope, never.

About the same as the Swedes. Annoying as all hell.

May the Blackhawks suffer their fate from the clutches of whatever Finlandian Monster of Myth there may be.  How about http://www.godchecker.com/pantheon/finnish-mythology.php?deity=SURMA ?

Do they sustain themselves by sucking all the emotion out of your racing drivers?

That's sisu, man.  Pure sisu.  Also they're probably concentrating on their ability to turn both left and right.  (Yeah, I know there's more than NASCAR.  Just going for the cheap shot.)

No argument here.  I gave up on gofastturnleft a long time ago, when someone introduced me to Formula 1.

That guy was more intense than Rod Philips, the voice of my childhood.

As a Bruin's fan, I have only one thing to say:

*PERKELE!*

Now I need a bottle of booze, a knife and a green hat with ear flaps.

Meh - compared to Jack Edwards, that Finn sounds positively sedate.

Not quite.  You're looking for "saatana" (double vowels in Finnish make a big difference).  You got the vittu part right, which fortunately is not Fark filterpwned.  :)

You could also use the ever catchy "Haista la vittu, beibi".
