Possibly the most painful experience without leaving second base. Dating back to terribly cold Ohio winters, this manuever was thought up to keep the blood flowing. More often than not, when done incorrectly the Cincinnati Handshake can cause severe bleeding.
My overzealous doctor accidently gave me a Cincinnati Handshake during my physical, I still can't piss straight.
