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. 

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.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
