I know topics on Andre should be in the WWE Section, but I thought the main Misc might find some of these interesting.
Andre The Giant is a household name as a pro wrestler, but was not only a legend in the ring....but in the bar as well. Andre drank INSANE amounts of alcohol, roughly 7,000 calories a day according to friends, family (brother) and his fellow wrestlers. This consumption was an average day in just booze alone, not including food.
Here are some of his career drinking highlights:
Andre downed "a dozen or so" quarts of beer before a match.
He ran up a $40,000 bar tab in England while filming the Princess Bride.
He drank 119 beers in a single 6 hour sitting, taking a piss break between each case.
It took Andre 2 liters of vodka for him to get a buzz.
He drank 16 bottles of wine during a 4 hour bus ride.
He drank 40 vodka tonics after a bartender did last call. Andre didn't want to leave, so the bartender agreed to stay as long as he was drinking. He polished off his 40th vodka tonic at around 5 am.
Andre drank 14 bottles of wine before his match with Hulk Hogan at Wrestlemania.
