This was A's first time going to a hockey game, which was surprising to me. Although I'm not a hockey fan, and the only reason I've gone to hockey games in the past was because my cousin grew up playing it, I've grown up going to different sporting events. I grew up with the 90s Cleveland Indians, so they've always had a special place in my heart. It was amusing to watch the game through A's point of view. He got so into the cheers, and I'm pretty sure he filmed everything on his GoPro. For me, I felt like I was back in America. Some of the chants were the same, they filmed people on the jumbotron, and even had a mascot dancing in the aisles.
One thing that made me laugh was how "Russian" Russians actually are. I mean grown men in front of us were actually drinking tea during the game. Only in Russia. Of course, you take alcohol to your seat, but it still made me laugh. Most days I can't see differences between Russians and Americans and other days I feel like I'm in a whole different world.
Do you go to sports games when you are abroad?
