#5 A New Way to Cheer




There's no yelling at refs...





or hollering because you're unhappy about a call...



There's never any bellowing at coaches and officials like an overzealous hockey parent...





Not being able to talk means finding a new way to cheer at your brother's hockey game, but being a fan who claps and jumps up and down in excitement is a refreshing change from some of the uncivilised behaviour others have demonstrated in the world of hockey.



As a fan, are you a quiet observer or are you loud and unruly?
