In 1997 and 1998, a well-known automobile race known as the World Rally Championship was held in Finland and drew a host of top drivers, along with an interloper who gave his name as Teukka Salama. Salama didn't come close to winning, but by all accounts found the experience exhilarating nonetheless.
This is not at all surprising, considering how the driver -- the name translated to Teddy Flash -- comported himself in his day job, and how he became renowned from the northern tip of Europe to the southern coast of California, and many places in between. Salama's real name, after all, was Teemu Selanne, aka "The Finnish Flash," a man who was a Ferrari on skates, a right wing with a stride as smooth and fluid as hot syrup; who moved so fast he would've left rubber if it were possible to do such a thing on a sheet of ice.
