Zagreb's Ice fever!

In the past couple of years hockey got a new boost in popularity in Zagreb. The usual stadium is always packed, cheering is amazing, probably the best in the whole EBEL league. Our team - Medveščak, or as we call them "medvjedi" (en. bears) is now second in the league and has been giving us heart-attack finishes this year. Each January, the whole show and cheering moves to a 15000-20000 seat arena, for louder, bigger, better show and cheering - called Ice fever. Yesterday, we had another heart-attack-finish, where Medvjedi won in overtime, while austrian KAC was in lead for most of the match. The whole show starts off with a typical US themed player introduction with flames, music etc (other sports in Croatia haven't adopted the scheme yet). In the first photo you can see the Nesquik rabbit waving at us, and the second shows the player intro:
