Finnish Football???
« on: January 05, 2005, 12:17:12 AM »
Hey Finnman,

I thought about you last night! This is football season here in U.S.A. and more specifically, this is Bowl time! All the colleges play the finals in the "bowl" games. Each of these bowl games are sponsered by large companies who get to put their names on the field at the 50 yard line. Last night I was watching the sugar bowl, guess who it was sponsered by? Nokia!!  Thinking of you. :lol:
By the rude bridge that arched the flood
Their flag to Aprils breeze unfurled
Here once the embattled farmers stood
And fired the shot heard round the world

can't think about Finland without thinking about Finman!

Thanks Jay! Most of all, you had point between you and lol.

Yes. Nokia have sponsored sports of young going people long time. When I saw Nokia everywhere 15 years ago, I wondered what is that?? What is Nokia???

Nokia was not yet know 15 years ago. It made toalet papers, rubber boots, tyres and it had 34 different business area. Then it sold other away and concentrated all to 3 area which were communication technology.  It is more than importand to Finnish now.  Before that it was Nokia Rubber Factory. Nokia is a town in the middle of Finland near Tampere.

American investors own over 80 % of Nokia.  Finnish Rapala is owned by Americans over 90%.

Thanks to all, my friends
