Term of the Week

Triple Crown

Traditionally, the Triple Crown refers to the 3 biggest races run by 3 year old thoroughbreds. There are different triple crowns in other countries, but in the US its the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Belmont Stakes. Winning all 3 races gives a horse the Triple Crown, and is considered the greatest accomplishment possible for a race horse.

However, there is now a second meaning to Triple Crown, as it is currently being used to refer to perhaps the worse possible end to a night of binge drinking. Surprisingly (or not, depending on the circles you run in) some people will go out and get so bombed that they puke, piss, and sh*t themselves. Accomplishing all 3 of these tasks wins the unlucky f*cker the Triple Crown, and will undoubtedly get them kicked out of whatever bar or house party they are at.
