There is no doubt that improper handling of a champagne bottle can lead to serious eye injuries, and lead to an awful start to the new year.  Last year I posted the following clip on YouTube.  It explains how to safely open a champagne bottle.  SInce the posting I have received several comments on the proper way to open a bottle.  One comment suggested never leaving the un-caged cork unprotected.  I agree, pressure should be placed on the cork as soon as the cage is removed!
