In the best NFL Action Shot of Week 16, Chargers Coach Marty Schottenheimer is caught in the nanosecond before he realizes he is already doused with Gatorade. The assistant coach at left appears unamused.
According to the late Mitch Hedberg, Gatorade's advertising efforts ignore a huge segment of the population by focusing solely on athletes:
"You don't have to be sweaty and holding a basketball to enjoy a Gatorade. You could just be a thirsty dude. Gatorade forgets about this demographic. I'm thirsty for absolutely no reason. Other than the fact that liquid has not touched my lips for some time. Can I have a Gatorade too, or does that lightning bolt mean 'No'?""
And for those who didn't know, the drink was invented at the University of Florida, hence the name.
