A lot of us have probably made some sacrifices in order to watch the action at Euro 2012 over the past couple weeks. It’s a big event, so it’s only natural that people would employ a watch-at-all-costs philosophy.
One Chinese man, however, took things a little too far.
[He] died after going 11 nights without sleep as he tried to watch every single kick of the ball of Euro 2012.
Jiang Xiaoshan, said to be supporting England and France in the tournament, died of exhaustion on Tuesday morning.
Because of the time difference, he reportedly stayed up each night with friends and then went to work the following day.Sources said, however, that the effect of alcohol and tobacco, combined with the chronic exhaustion, was to blame for his death as it weakened his immune system.
There’s such a thing as too much of a good thing. Everything in moderation, people. Everything in moderation.
