The first annual Beer Olympics held in my backyard was an enormous success. It was a gorgeous day for sport. People dressed in costumes and uniforms, the music was nostalgic (90s and early 2000s) and dance-worthy and, most importantly, there was competitive drinking.
We had originally scheduled three events: Flip Cup, Beer Pong Relay and Quarters Relay. However, we were so intoxicated by the end of the second event, it was a chore to get people organized and playing games. As Master of Ceremonies, I ended the "Events" portion of the Games, handed out trophies to the winning team and signaled the beginning of the drinking free-for-all, which included keg stands and shotgunning beer.
At the end of the day, 19 people, including someone's dad, combined to finish a keg and two cases of beer. It was a fun time, and we hope to do it again next year. In the mean time, we're going to rest up, continue training and hopefully regain some of our dignity.
