A Patriotic Man

Toivo is a fiftysomething man who loses his job only to find he's not wholly without value to the community: Donating blood at his local hospital, he learns that not only is he a universal donor, but his blood is so hemoglobin-rich "many athletes would kill" for it. A doctor hooks him up with the Finnish ski team, which quickly hires him, ostensibly to wrangle equipment but actually as a "reserve tank" for skiers in need of a pre-race transfusion.
