Bern 4, Lugano 3

Lugano HC put up a decent fight, but in the end, they were no match for the Bern Bears this weekend. I'm not sure who won in the fight between the Lugano fans and the Bern fans. I found their passions to be equally matched. (Bern had huge flags and made a big mess of their section, but I think Lugano gestured more profusely and threw more items on the ice.) Maybe one of the policeman in riot gear could give a final verdict as to how it ended on the street.

In any case, it's clear to me now that what everyone is doing sealed up in their apartments on the weekends is practicing chants, stockpiling flares, and plotting general treachery against the fans of visiting hockey teams. Can't wait for football season!

Credit must be given where credit is due. Let it be known that SwissMr. is the one who risked everything (including nearly missing the bus home) to actually snap that photo. I only provided the camera.

Good point, Frau. I didn't even even think of that, but it's so true.
