In truth, I'm in awe of how crazy Canada goes for this tournament, and how many of you guys travel the globe for it. It'll be our first time at a World Jrs, and many of my hockey friends just don't understand why we're going. Too bad for them. I can't wait!
As far as New Year's Eve, the USA/Canada game is a 5:30pm start. Assuming the game will be over by 8 or 8:30pm, it'll be relatively early. Do any locals have suggestions for what to do or where to go that night? Does Malmo have a NYE celebration, or does it make more sense to take the train to Copenhagen for the evening/night? Any specific bars where a bunch of hockey fans could walk in a few hours before midnight and be welcome?
Hey THANK YOU for the summary. Really, really helpful. My husband is ordering tickets tomorrow. You are right that it is getting slim - front rows or corners/ends. Bright side is that if we choose the end zones it will be even cheaper!
Your comment about the trash talking made me laugh. I *almost* said in that message something about hanging out with Americans on New Years Eve after Canada beats the USA in the game :-). So yes, let the trash talking begin! I think we will get along very well and will have a lot of fun! I am looking forward to meeting other crazy hockey fans...
Would love to hear from locals about where we can hang out on NYE. In Buffalo, there was a "First night" thing downtown, but it was outside and we really don't go for freezing our butts off outside in the middle of the night :-). But a bar or something would work quite well!
