I'm A Fan

If you're a regular reader of this blog, you're fully aware of who the team to the left is. That's Örebro wearing their Pride Night uniforms as they participated in the day's events celebrating the rights of LGBT individuals. They walked in the Pride parade earlier in the afternoon, and they recognized the importance of equal rights throughout the game. In other words, Örebro is a great community-based team!

Julius Hudachek, affectionately known as the "HudaShow" for his post-game celebrations, went one step further after Örebro defeated Frolunda by a 4-2 score. Normally, Hudachek takes to the ice on his own and celebrates with the fans, but he decided to bring a few more teammates on the ice after this game.
Hudachek and the guys danced to The Village People's YMCA in a show of solidarity for LGBT rights, and I have to admit that they do a pretty good job. The various hats they wore made it fairly easy to see what they were up to once they stood across the blue line.

I want to give Örebro full credit for being deeply involved in their community and helping to fight for equal rights for the LGBT community. If there is one team who deserves a mark of certification from the You Can Play project, Örebro would certainly meet the requirements.

Well done, Örebro! Yet another reason why I'm a fan of this team!

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
