Fear of the Olympics being over (FOBO) afflicts four out of five Vancouverites, a recent survey taken by Team Vancouver Observer shows.
"Will our city remain so jovial and friendly?" tweets @kpwerker.
"I am already depressed about it," writes Janine T in a comment on Facebook in response to a VO poll about the spread of FOBO through the city.
"I have that unexpected feeling. I don't want it to end. I'm enjoying the "aliveness" of it all. Back to reality...party over?" @tjbuffonery tweets.
FOBO is also afflicting television-viewers throughout the world who are suffering from Anticipatory Vancouver Deprivation Disorder (AVDD.)
"We'll miss seeing how beautiful BC is and all we'll get instead will be Jay Leno and the new Jerry Seinfeld show about arguing married couples," writes New York resident Lynn S on Facebook.
"Still have our Vancouver Whitecaps FC soccer games in spring/summer to look forward to. Also, a few marathon, running, multi-sports races to keep us busy in the spring/summer," Earla R added.
