    Default Smiley translation

    Would someone familiar with the Russian language please interpret the words in this FPGeeks "fans" smiley. I recognized РОССИЯ but not the rest. I can only speculate.

    I seem to remember this coming up before - the best I can do (bearing in mind it's been about 25 years since I lived in Russia) is:

    OLÉ! OLÉ! OLÉ!
    OLÉ!!!
    RUSSIA!!!
    FORWARD!!!

    I think it's to do with hockey...
    (and has been in the smiley list for as long as I can remember)
