A Taiwanese girl who is now living in Montreal writes about what she discovered and experienced in this amazing city.

What's the most popular sport in Canada? Needless to say, it is hockey.
I went to Bell center with three friends. Before we found our seat, I bought a hot dog which was not only expensive (4 loonies) but also miserably tiny. Despite the fact that I felt I was ripped off by the undersized hot dog, it didn't kill my excitement for seeing the game. While I was waiting for the game to begin, I enjoyed the ambiance of the stadium, listening to the music and reading the colorful scrolling text marquee.
I didn't really know who those teams were, I just needed to know which team I was going to support, and make sure there were no other supporters against me. The game soon started, and my eye ball followed the puck the whole night long. My blood was flowing when I saw the team I was supporting hit the puck into the opponent's goal, I was screaming like a crazy. What a good spot for releasing stresses.
In the break time, there were some cheerleaders dancing, a couple of cars were shooting souvenirs into the audience and a couple of cute ice polish car were tiding up the ice floor. We could often see people on the screen. There was an unwritten rules which is, if a couple was seen on the screen, they had to kiss. So I saw an elder couple (see the picture in the middle above) kissed one another that was very cute.
Overall, although the game I went to watch was not a professional game, I was quite satisfied. Next time I go there I'm gonna buy a beer for getting even crazier.
