Read about the Winter War between Finland and Russia in 1939-40. For every Finnish soldier killed, 5 Russian soldiers were killed.

It is rumored that they fooled them by walking backwards into to the country in the snow and the Russians thought they were leaving.

Suomilinen (if you tried to say Finnish it's suomalainen) well any way: yeah you really should do a real reserch about the Winter war. It's actually that for every Finnish soldier killed, 10 Russian soldiers were killed.
PeteP: i'm not arguing about a rumor with you but i'd like to point out some facts. the main reasons for our succee was that we were very well trained, we were better prepared for hard cold winter weather and for a lot of snow and thick forests.

[b]Eagles QB Michael Vick out vs. Patriots[/b]
Vick suffered a broken ribs injury in the Eagles' week ten loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Last week, the Eagles started back-up quarterback Vince Young in Vick's place.

And now due to the broken ribs, he not play against the [b][url=http://www.comjerseysc om.com/Sports-outdoors/Nfl-jer seys-Football-jersey-Jerseys-W holesale/New-England-Patriots- Nfl-Jerseys/]New England Patriots [/url][/b]because of broken ribs.

Vick misses his second straight game. Vince Young will instead of him. In a 17-10 victory over the New York Giants, Young tossed for 258 yards and two touchdowns, while throwing three interceptions. Young looked a bit hesitant and rusty early, going 8-18 and throwing two interceptions in the first half, but came on strong near the game's finish (15-18 and the game winning touchdown).
