Irish Car Bomb Champion

Sunday, January 13th, 2008 · 3 Comments


I’m fortunate to be married to the Irish Car Bomb (ICB) Champion. That’s right: Jen is undefeated in the ways of pounding the delicious concoction of Guinness, Jameson, and Bailey’s. As she likes to say, “It’s my only super power. I use it only for good and not evil.”


Thursday night following a Team in Training meeting at the library with Sarah, I met up with Jen and Patricia for happy hour — first at Mouzon House, followed by the more fun portion of the evening at (the old side of) Gaffney’s. Justin joined us later on, too, and he attempted to beat Jen’s incredible 3-second ICB time, which, for the first time ever, was captured on video (note that I’m only a second behind her):

(You can enjoy photos of the last ICB evening, too.)

Here’s Justin’s 6-second ICB attempt:

Winner and still champion: Jen.

I hear that my cousin Sararose is a fellow ICB champ, so I’ll look forward to an A_nderson women’s showdown one day.

    Jen, I’m not at all amazed at your pounding prowess – actually, I’d be pissed if you didn’t spread shame throughout the brewhaus by showing off your talents! I’m a distance man myself, and I have great respect for those who can slam ICB’s like that (sorry, Justin! Ha-ha-ha!!!)

    Thanks for sharing the video.
