“Bumgarnering” Is Now a Thing

Beloved San Francisco Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner reportedly celebrated his World Series victory by drinking one beer, like a regular dude. 

But the images that really stuck with are the ones showing Bumgarner jubilantly pouring beer over himself after all of the Giants' previous post-season wins. Like he does here, here, and here.

Thus begat the new verb “Bumgarnering,” for anyone who photographs him or herself shot-gunning multiple beers at once. 

[jump] There's even a #bumgarnering feed on Instagram. Note that no one has quite mastered the Bumgarner technique of fitting six beers into two massive paws.

Incidentally, Bumgarner also got a fancy new Chevy truck after Game 7. Unfortunately, there's no verb for that.
