Just saw the new Gatorade commercial . . . had no idea it was actually created for the Florida Gators a while back . . . hence the name, Gatorade. Vewwwwy vewwwy interestin'
I actually kind of wonder how many people this might turn away from drinking it . . . I know if a drink called Redsoxade came out, I'd sure as heck avoid it. (Then again, it's not like the Red Sox have ever really won anything, so I can't imagine it would sell too well) :heh:

i think that was a question on jepoardy or the weakest link or trivial pursit (the board game.) so i did know that it was developed for the florida gators.
but i haven't seen the commerical.
btw, i'm addicted to the stuff. i love the purple frost one (i don't know the name, i just get the purple one.) my car always has empty bottles strewn about.

I saw that commercial tonight. It was actually pretty interesting. Very well done, Gatorade! :)
Never knew that was why it was called Gatorade until I saw the commercial yesterday either. Good stuff. :)

Even without the hype, it is an ideal mixture for rehydration. :P

Oh, and the "Fruit Punch" flavor is the best :D

I knew that. I was a Gators fan back when Gatorade was invented.

Well, as sho.gun's mother said: "If life gives you Gators, make Gatorade."
