“I”s on the World: Hot Shots
Patrick Tyrrell, ’76 LAS, started off 2020 by venturing to Antarctica. Of his photo sporting Orange and Blue on the bottom of the world, Tyrrell says that his “camera-shy wife” Catherine took it. “She’s a University of Alabama alumna. Other than football season, we get along pretty well.”
The couple viewed local penguins on sailing expeditions during their visit. For Tyrrell, the highlight of the trip, however, was visiting Ukraine’s Vernadsky Research Station and its watering hole. “[The bar] reminded me of the old Second Chance Bar in Campustown, where I had my first legal mixed drink,” he says. “[They] make their own vodka and sell it for $5 a shot. It goes down pretty hot. Money well spent.”
