The champagne shower is the traditional celebration in sports. It's kind of like how we celebrate with champagne toasts in the real world, only we drink it and they shake it up and spray each other in the face with it.
Well, not always in the face. But usually in the general vicinity of the face and head.
From that vague description alone, it should come as no surprise that this particular celebration can be as photographically awkward as it is time-honored. A camera snapped at just the right moment is truly a treasure.
Here are 50 pics of really awkward champagne celebration moments.
