Lausanne hockey playoff game...and some crazy fanfare!

Facing off!

Our mascot, the Lausanne Lion!

The die-hard, crazy fan section!

So, Mark loves hockey...okay, a little more than love...he is, what I would call, obsessed with hockey! Well, after a couple of failed attempts, we finally made it to a hockey game. Lausanne has a pro hockey team called the Lausanne Hockey Club. The team made it to the playoffs this year and we attended Game 1 of the 7-Game series. The Swiss take their hockey pretty serious and each town's team has a "crazy fan" section....Lausanne is no exception! It was pretty entertaining to watch these fans chant, play drums and wave flags for the entire game. The visiting team's fan section, although small, also had drums and flags! There was no shortage of cheering going on! ( Check out my video below.) Lausanne played well and won 5-2 so we had lots to cheer about. Go Lions!
