On Saturday, the beer orgy that is Oktoberfest kicked off in Munich, Germany for the 181st time. It’s 16 days of booze, pretzels, booze, lederhosen and more booze.
A couple of Munich’s local sports teams got in on the act by donning lederhosen jerseys during games over the weekend. Soccer side 1860 Munich drew 1-1 with Ingolstadt in a Bavarian derby while wearing the festive look. Their fans even celebrated with an awesome lederhosen-themed tifo.
Not wanting to be left out in the fun, EHC Red Bull Munich had their own lederhosen getup during their 4-3 win over Düsseldorf EC.

To help promote the Oktoberfest-themed games, players from EHC Red Bull and 1860 Munich got together last week at a local brewery for some unique competitiion.

The win moved Munich to 4-0 and on top of the DEL standings, which means they're one step closer to fist-pumping the entire city again in celebration of playoff hockey.
