Olympians have always had a reputation for knowing how to party. Turns out the people of Vancouver are on the same (very drunk) page. The town has been catching some flak for some recent out of control behavior during the games. Check it out, an article in the Times describes a walk through the main drag on an Olympic evening.
Most of the revelers were well under 30 and a significant number seem to be very intoxicated. A stroll through downtown near midnight saw several young men urinating in public, numerous people drunk to the point where they needed support from friends to stay standing and two women who said they were not feeling well who certainly looked the part.
We always get a little wistful when the Olympics come to an end. Partially because we enjoy watching, but mainly because we never like the last hours of a party. Hopefully the closing ceremonies will give us a blow-out to remember. Come on, Vancouver – ruin that reputation forever!
