Quick Fact of the Day

Why is the world’s most popular sports drink called Gatorade? Simple.

Try playing Divison 1A NCAA football in Gainesville, Florida, one of the hottest places on earth where football is actually played.

When playing in the extreme heat, water isn’t good enough, so the University of Florida got it’s scientists to create a drink that was better than water, something to help their beloved Gators gain an advantage over their water-drinking opponents.

And Gatorade was born.

Tiger Woods now owes his new contract to some scientists in Florida.
