Gatorade shower

Gatorade shower


In 2005, ESPN sports business writer Darren Rovell published a book entitled "First in Thirst: How Gatorade Turned the Science of Sweat into a Cultural Phenomenon, a history of Gatorade", in which he, among other things, documented the story behind the Gatorade dunking phenomenon. [ibid, pages 77-91]

Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers was reported to be the first NBA coach to receive a Gatorade shower when his team won the 2008 NBA championship. [Stein, Marc (June 18, 2008). [ Three Party triumph: KG leads, Allen scorches and Pierce takes MVP] . Retrieved on June 23, 2008.] Paul Pierce dumped a cooler of red Gatorade over Rivers as the Celtics closed out Game 6 to clinch their first NBA title in 22 years.
