This was the chant that might have caused a sore throat, but thankfully it didn’t.
On Friday I attended my first ever ice hockey match, and I’m so glad I went. Apart from Dynamo Riga winning 3 – 1 it was just so much fun. Unlike feeling inhibited at football/soccer matches in case you upset someone’s sensitivities and cause a fight. At the Riga Arena I felt able to chant and heckle without feeling that security was going to evict me. I can’t comment on the skill levels on display but the match was fast, furious, frenetic, no prima donnas on display and definitely no arguments with the referee, a great spectacle for all to take the family. Another plus is that for fantastic seats the tickets are great value. Just a shame the arena was only half full. Come on you Rigans (Ridzinieks) get down to the Arena and support your team, they need you.
