Funniest Handshake Fails in Sports
Chris Carlson/Associated Press

Over the years, the tried-and-true handshake has evolved to include several subtypes: the airborne handshake (high-five), the germaphobe handshake (fist bump) and, on extremely rare occasions, the overly affectionate handshake (handshake plus kiss). 

Awkward and hilarious situations involving all types will be presented here along with handshakes that simply display a notably high degree of failure. 

I don’t want to leave out the killer choreographed handshakes (shoutout to Geovany Soto and FSU baseball), but those aren’t really fails. Ridiculous? Yes. Fails? No.
