SOCHI, Russia – Fun photo alert:
The Japanese women's hockey team had already practiced a couple of times after arriving in Sochi, and they even played an exhibition game against the hosting Russians on Wednesday night.
So instead of wearing themselves out during Thursday's ice time, they spent the hour horsing around on the ice, mostly taking pictures with their phones. Several of the players pushed each other around on the chairs that had been used for the team photo.
