Congrats to Iron Man Joe Bastianich

And Batali's been boxing, a bit.

In just over twelve hours — about the same amount of time it takes to get up to La Birreria — New York's own Joe Bastianich, 43, completed the unthinkably challenging Iron Man World Championship in Kona, calling it "a day that will change my life forever ... very emotional!" Bastianich tweets that the swimming portion slowed him down a bit, but according to the records, Joey B. did good! [Iron Man]
