We’ve said it once before, but it bears repeating: there’s nothing sweeter than the taste of victory—drenched in champagne.
And with MLB playoffs ramping up this week, we thought it wise to revisit some of the finest moments in champagne-drenched locker room celebration—as sort of a refresher course in anticipation of the effervescent-soaked revelry to come—from Willie Mays, to Reggie Jackson, to Ichiro, to Ken Forsch. So, without further ado:
There’s nothing sweeter than the taste of victory—drenched in champagne. This snap comes from the winner’s podium of the America’s Cup where Team Oracle fought their way back from dead last to cross the finish line first in the San Francisco Bay this past weekend. And as you might have suspected, guys who race yachts for a living know their way around a jeroboam of Moët & Chandon (official sponsors, naturally). Though you might want to be more careful about not getting it in your eyes.
We’ve filed the appropriate paperwork and submitted the requisite $89.50: from now on, May 10 will also be known as No More Bullshit Holidays Day. As you may have gathered from our recent posts on No Socks Day and National High Five Day, we’re done with meaningless celebrations of nothing at all.
