From Sweden but just bought tickets for the Norwegian QF, will be chanting like crazy with all the other Viking-brothers in the stands.

Whos in apart from the Norwegians themselfs?

Great to see a gritty team with positive attitude have some success, this goes for their fanbase aswell. Here's hoping for another upset on syttonde mai.

I always cheer for Norway, as I'm of Norwegian ancestry. My grandma still speaks Norwegian, occasionally.

North Dakota is like 40% norwegian-Americans.

What's the point of a bandwagon that will last for one game?

This is the kind of attitude that tends to backfire, speaking from my own experience and I suspect a few teams this tourney

For what it's worth I've been bandwagoning them since last year when they beat us (Sweden), this tournament isn't really a surprise to anyone who has followed them from a few years back.

We all know the odds, but Norway has all the tools in place for the biggest upset in the last decade. More nervous about Norway than most other teams, they are steamrolling at the moment.

My dad's side of the family originates from Norway, so I cheer for them every year, even against Canada (Canada doesn't really care about the WHC's, while a victory over Canada is great for Norway's development as a hockey nation).

Been on it since they spanked us last tournament. Big fan of Tollefsen and Zucca (not a MoDo-fan!).

Go Norge! Hopefully hockey gets bigger there and not just the sport called "kick ball"

In the next NOR game I'm certainly in their bandwagon
In the one after that I can't be, for obvious reasons.
