Dumping gatorade on the winning coach, does anybody else think this
is silly and outdated?

It all started with Parcell and the Giants back in the '80s.

It was a novelty at first, but it seems like every team now has to do it.

If I was a coach, I'd tell my players to cut it out.

The players enjoy it. Why tell them to stop?

I dunno... the premature Gatorade dump during the Bluegrass miracle was pretty phenomenal.

Having cold water dumped on you doesn't cause pneumonia.

Look it up for yourself, home slice.

Or just keep believing the urban legend that a gatorade bath caused a coach to get pneumonia.

Doesn't matter to me.

The late George Allen might disagree with some of you clowns who think dumping cold gatorcade is just so hip and cool.

Death[edit]
Allen's death may have been indirectly caused by a Gatorade shower. He died on December 31, 1990, from ventricular fibrillation in his home in Palos Verdes Estates, California, at the age of 72. Shortly before his death, Allen noted that he had not been feeling well since some of his Long Beach State players dumped a Gatorade bucket filled with ice water on him following a season-ending victory over the University of Nevada, Las Vegas on November 17, 1990 (he remarked that the university couldn't afford actual Gatorade).


I knew I was thinking of something specific

You think cold water causes pneumonia and you're insulting my intelligence?

quote:

There are a few problems with that story. First of all, as your middle school science teacher could tell you, being doused with cold water during a cold day does not cause pneumonia. Pneumonia is caused by a virus. It is an urban legend in and of itself that getting wet during a cold day causes pneumonia (or the common cold, for that matter). It does not. So Allen could not have caught pneumonia from the Gatorade shower. That's the first notable problem with that story. The second problem? George Allen did not die from pneumonia. Allen died from ventricular fibrillation, a variation of a cardiac arrest. Allen had a heart arrhythmia (an irregular heartbeat) and in late December 1990, Allen's heart began to quiver rather than contract properly. This led to his death. This was not caused by a Gatorade shower received more than a month earlier. Allen himself fed the story a bit by giving an interview soon before his death where he noted that he had had not felt well since the Gatorade shower. Allen's son, former Virginia Senator and Governor George Allen Jr. told Sam Borden of the New York Times, “He got a cold from it, but that was not the cause of his death. He had a heart arrhythmia. It had nothing to do with the Gatorade shower.”
