One of the most universal ways to celebrate an accomplishment in sports, and in life in general, is with a high five. There’s something empowering about a connection of palms that seals the deal on what you’ve achieved; however, when two hands don’t connect properly at an exact moment, the moment of magic quickly turns into an embarrassing recovery of your failed attempt. And while it may seem unfathomable to botch such a simple gesture, these 11 examples prove it might be too complex for some people.

11. The Solo Celebration

When you come into the dugout from a stellar at bat, but everyone’s too busy to celebrate with you.

10. The Swat

When you go in for a high five, but your teammate would rather low five.
