That is because, that no matter how sluggish and out of shape a person is, he or she still can achieve status and acclaim by mastering this popular sport. The secret to rising to the top of the heap as a competitor in drinking games is practice, practice, practice.

Become a Master at the Game

ATHENS Women's Cooper Kupp Jersey , July 7 (Xinhua) -- The critical referendum concluded Sunday in Greece with a resounding "No" to creditors' debt deal terms, but the current mood in Athens is still heavy.

Posters and graffiti advocating "No" or "Yes" adorn the streets. Restaurants and cafes, where Greeks often spend their summer afternoons relaxing, lie half empty. There are still long lines in front of ATMs. Athens' public transportation -- free to use until further notice -- is remarkably empty.

"This result of the referendum -- a resounding 'No' -- was expected, " Nikos, a young web developer in the northeastern suburb of Athens, said to Xinhua while waiting to withdraw money from an ATM.

He had voted "No" on Sunday alongside 61.3 percent of other Greeks Women's Eric Dickerson Jersey , rejecting the new conditions associated with the EU bailout package.

For Nikos, Brussels represents oppression. "Millions have lost their jobs and thousands have committed suicide," he told Xinhua.

He said a "Grexit," or Greek exit from the eurozone, is his desired outcome. "When a country controls its own economy, it can produce better things," Nikos said.

But even for Nikos Women's Aaron Donald Jersey , the future is uncertain. "Nobody even thinks about his career. People know that they may be fired any day and their careers are independent of the referendum result," he said.

Indeed, Greeks -- a smiling, optimistic people on the whole -- are looking noticeably stressed. There are a lot less smiles on the streets. Metro carriages and buses -- usually filled with loud conversations and banter -- are almost completely silent. One can sense that something is definitely amiss, and the referendum result has not lifted the overall mood.

The capital control imposed recently by the Greek government, under which only 60 euros can be withdrawn daily from ATMs, is not a significant concern for Nikos.

"Sixty euros a day is 1800 euros a month Women's Jared Goff Jersey , everybody spends much less than that -- even families," Nikos said.

A short distance away from the ATM from which Nikos was withdrawing money is a modern cafe, from which Jazz music was emanating. It was empty except for two customers sitting at an outdoor table.

Sarantis, the owner of the cafe, also voted "no" in the referendum. Originally from the town of Chania, Crete, Sarantis' family migrated to Athens 50 years ago.

"This 'no' is because the Greeks cannot hold up to so much pressure anymore -- the pressure has been pushing down on them for the last five to six years Women's Todd Gurley II Jersey ," Sarantis said.

The feeling of injustice is strong with Sarantis: He works up to 18 hours a day, and all his employees have been working there for more than 7 years.

Yet, for Sarantis and his five employees, the future is grim. He has been running the cafe for 9 years, however, Sarantis said the place is "nearing closure" due to the lack of customers and a heavy tax burden.

Sarantis has to pay 2,000 euros a month in electricity bills Cheap Robert Woods Jersey , and the taxes, including property taxes, eat up about 50 percent of his earnings. Previously, the cafe had another branch that closed two years ago -- the 23 percent value-added tax during the harsh rounds of austerity was the final blow.

"If I close down," Sarantis said, "where do they (the employees) go?"

To Sarantis, the harsh measures Germany and the EU have proposed to Greece seem to be a repeat of history.

"When the Germans attacked (Crete) in World War II Cheap Sammy Watkins Jersey , they (the Greeks) fought. How can they vote 'yes' there where my grandfather was fighting -- without even guns -- to defend us against German paratroopers?" Sarantis said.

A few hundred meters away from Sarantis' cafe is the Aghia Paraskevi metro station, one of the newest in the metro system and perhaps a reminder of better times. Upon traveling down the escalator into the elegantly decorated but empty, marble-coated station with its fancy lighting, one notic.
