Topic: Soccer + Alcohol + Sleep Deprivation = DEATH!!1!

CHANGSHA, China -

A Chinese soccer fan died at his home after going 11 nights without sleep as he watched every single Euro 2012 game from Poland and Ukraine.

Jiang Xiaoshan died from exhaustion June 19 after reportedly staying up every night to watch the Euros with his friends.

After watching Italy defeat the Republic of Ireland, the 26-year-old fan went back to his home in Changsha, took a shower and fell asleep. Xiaoshan never woke up.

Sources claim that the combined effects of alcohol, tobacco and sleep deprivation were to blame for his untimely death. Xiaoshan's friends were left shocked after learning of his death, stating that he lived a "relatively healthy life."

It is not the first time fans have suffered health issues watching international tournaments from different time zones. Several people were admitted to hospitals during the World Cup tournaments in 2006 and 2010 due to exhaustion.

Because of the time difference, all the European Championship games are played in the middle of the night in China.

So i'm guessing nobody has imported DVR to China yet?

It is a fair wind that blew men to the ale.

You know, if they were playing the euro cup using american football rules this would never happen.  This article proves that soccer is not only boring but bad for your health.
