Some of you have probably heard about this already – but during the 2010 Winter Olympics, there was a major condom shortage in the Olympic Village as well as for the athletes themselves. They had to import some in from other provinces just to fill the need! At first I thought, this is probably normal when a city gets a sudden surge of energy, excitement, and competition. Everybody wants to get into the Team Spirit, quite literally. However, after the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, they auctioned off 5,000 condoms that were left over after the games.
So to all Vancouverites and visiting parties, Congratulations for shackin’ up in the Spirit of it all!
