Olympics - Day 9
I didn't expect the level of excitement and endearingly dorky national pride that I saw at ski jumping.
From the cheap seats the crowd definitely made the whole trip (all seven hours of bus, train, car, and feet) worth it.
Everyone cheered whoever went the farthest. Even the viking hat guys cheered for the Swiss gold medalist. And there were cowbells all around.
Now I just need to get my own cowbell before the next hockey game. A girl can only yell so much for every goal.
*Viking guy didn't get arrested, though when the cops came to check his backpack he asked them to watch it while he went for a fresh beer.
