If ever there was a photo in search of a caption contest, this is it.

Caption suggestions in the comments, please.

My suggestion, "Unretiring?"

The German drinks his champagne with such a massive gear....he's such a beast-of-a-man

I think, maybe he's reenacting his reaction to first seeing T-Mobile's pink kit. I mean, seriously, German boys in pink?! Never thought I'd see the day....

While usually not a problem when a water bottle is involved, here one of Armstrong's well-timed off-color jokes elicits an explosive and painful magnum-sized spit-take from Ulrich.

Ha, classic Paul-Sherwenism from Konelch. :D

To paraphrase Winona Ryder's line from "Girl, Interrupted": "I was thirsty!"

Und, also in der German:

"Der Kaiser hatte Königlichen Durst."
