Last night I went to an intense women's hockey game, China vs. Russia. There was an overwhelming amount of Chinese fans, including someone dressed up as a giant panda. The seats shook from stomping, clapping, and Chinese chants, but that did not slow down the Russian fans. With the constant "CHINA!" "RUSSIA!" "CHINA!" "RUSSIA!" yelling, it was surprising that the athletes got to play at all. It was an exciting game and quite even throughout. The atmosphere and energy of all of the fans gave the feeling that the outcome of the game did not matter one bit.
