San Francisco Giants starter Tim Lincecum has had his share of “accidents” on live TV in recent years – his “fuck yeah” moment potentially topping the list. However, the Freak might have one-upped himself today after the Giants eliminated the Cincinnati Reds in the National League Division Series.

In their post-game celebration, Barry Zito crept up behind the two-time Cy Young winner and as Lincecum looked up, Zito sprayed Lincecum in the face with a bottle of champagne. That lead to Lincecum shouting this, per Deadspin:
"“Now I know what chicks feel like.”"
If you need an explanation on what Lincecum was referencing, Urban Dictionary might be your friend. Or a Karma Sutra book. Or a porn.
On the plus side – given the location of impact, Zito clearly has his control back which is fantastic news for the NLCS.
