Chris Bosh’s locker room champagne shower was truly awkward (animated GIF)

Far be it from me to criticize the manner in which another person elects to celebrate one of the crowning achievements of their life, but unfortunately for Chris Bosh, his celebratory champagne shower in the locker room following the Miami Heat securing the franchise’s second NBA title (and first for LeBron and Bosh) is something of an awkward scene. Make that, well, as far as locker room champagne showers are concerned, it doesn’t get much more awkward than this train wreck.

Most of the videos available on YouTube have titles that are some variation of “Chris Bosh is a homo” or “Chris Bosh is so gay” so I would prefer not to shine any light on the homophobic antics of half-witted internet troglodytes. What makes the champagne facial so amusing is that Bosh doesn’t play for that particular team, in a manner of speaking. Therein lies the humor of it all. I know it requires some level of sophistication to understand the distinction, but then again, we are talking about a guy getting sprayed in the face with a white liquid substance, so there you go.

Thankfully, the fine folks at The Big Lead have come through with an animated GIF that captures the scene in all its awkward glory.

Hoo boy. There’s not much more you can say about that.
