Czechs and Slovaks

Went to the Czechs vs. Slovaks hockey game last night. Of all the "B" hockey games, I thought this would be the best. I was right.

The crowd was crazy. I would say 1/3 Slovaks, 1/3 Czechs, 1/3 random hockey tourists. With the mixed crowd, there was pretty much a cheer for everything. The atmosphere was so positive and loud. So full of flags and body paint and weird costumes. It was amazing.

Almost everybody in the crowd that wasn't Czech seemed to be cheering for the Slovaks. They played a good game. Lots of shots. But couldn't score. Regardless, it was a great experience.
