The Norwegian Erik Mykland was a true sensation at Panathinaikos. His drinking performances shocked many Greeks.

Quite a while back we made a post about the top-11 football players who were heavy drinkers in their glory days, all world class players without a doubt. But the best ones are not always the most well loved by the fans. Every football club has it’s classic cult heroes. Usually these are not the most technical players and also not the pretty boys. Most of the time there is something wrong with cult heroes that makes them human, so the fans can relate to them as if he is one of their own. A bad temper, poor eye sight or a leg that’s 5 centimeters shorter than the other, but the true cult heroes are the ones that drink like a fan, preferably with the fans and still give their all on the pitch. These are definitely not the 11 best players you’ve ever seen, but they gained a sacred status by performing both on and off the pitch.

Czech Republic has some excellent beers, no wonder they are pretty popular.

And the winner is…. Czech Republic! That’s right, Czechs drink most beer of all in the world. Well, not in total because that’s China with 54.000.000.000 liters, but with around 1.35 billion habitants that comes down to only 40 liters a year per person.

Let’s clear something up right away. When we’re talking about birds in this article we mean the feathered animals and not British slang for girls. So yes, in the Canadian territory Yukon little drunk tanks were opened to take care of birds, in most cases the Bohemian waxwing, who ate too manny fermented berries.

Buzz Aldrin, the first drunk on the Moon

Buzz Aldrin, the first heavy drinker that ever walked on the Moon.

Buzz Aldrin, the first heavy drinker that ever walked on the Moon.

The worst thing you can be at something it´s second. It doesn´t really matter if it´s the 100 meter sprint at the Olympics or a trip to the Moon. Just ask Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin. This American astronaut was the second person ever to take a walk out there but everybody mostly remembers the legendary words from Neil Armstrong: “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”. After that Aldrin’s footprints on the Moon soil of course seemed not nearly as important. Ironically he gained nearly as much fame by following the 12 step program of the Anonymous Alcoholics.
