Props to him.

I wonder if they still make Gator Gum? They used to sell that at the Athlete's Foot at Metrocenter when I was little. Tastiest chewing gum I can recall.

Thank GOODNESS for Gatorade. I'm a new fan of Propel Fitness Water (how Gatorade does water). SO tasty and only 10 calories per serving!

Good call, vhdawg, haven't thought of gator gum in a long time. I liked that stuff. Although I doubt it provided much hydration.

In other news, there is a cutting edge super high tech study out today that concludes with scientific precision - this year's hurricane season was milder than predicted.

i love how the whole idea came about. An off-hand remark about players not weeing after a game. It's amazing to me where the spark of genius comes from. How many great things have happened by accident, by an off-hand remark or a goof-up (stickies).

I had no idea about the origin, but now that I know, I'll always connect it with the Gators!
