The 28 Funniest Gatorade Baths of All-Time

Update: Thanks to Twitter, this post caught the attention of Gatorade president Sarah Robb O’Hagan (@SarahRobbOh). She enjoyed our rundown of the funniest Gatorade baths ever, and she also sent me the wall mural from Gatorade’s headquarters with some of their favorite Gatorade baths of all-time. It’s very cool. You’ll see it at the end of the post.

The Gatorade bath is a tradition like few others in sports.

After most monumental wins in football – specifically Super Bowls, national championship games, especially important and/or meaningful bowl games, or season-ending victories over hated rivals – such a celebration can be expected. The tradition began with the New York Giants in the mid-1980s and continues into today with no signs of slowing down.

While the sentimental among us enjoy the Gatorade bath because it symbolizes the triumph of a team of men on the field of athletic battle and the ultimate moment of shared jubilation and respect between coach and player, I enjoy Gatorade baths for a far different reason.

Pictures and videos of them can be laugh-lout-loud hilarious.

So here is my personal ode to the Gatorade bath, with the 28 funniest Gatorade baths of all-time, presented in no particular order other than saving the best ones for last.

But no Gatorade shower can or will ever be quite as funny as the one in this video, all things considered.

Guy Morriss


Update: Actually, I was mistaken. I’m not quite sure how I forgot about one of my favorite Gatorade bath pictures of all time, but I did. Thankfully, loyal Tweeters like @jimkanicki are here to remind me of the error of my ways. For goodness sakes, this pic is the background of Spencer Hall’s Twitter page!

Here is the great Howard Schnellenberger (the man who laid the foundation at The U, for those too young to remember) being doused by his team at Florida Atlantic.


There are my choices. I went through hundreds of pictures and videos to narrow the list down, but there certainly could be many more funny ones out there. Feel free to post links below.

Random thought: I suppose I should change the number in the title to 29 considering that there are technically now 29 images and videos with the addition of the Schellenberger picture, but since one of the pics is an elephant peeing on Les Miles, we won’t count that as a Gatorade bath.

Update: And here is the picture of the mural at Gatorade HQ sent to me by Sarah Robb O’Hagan:

  45. Dankjewel voor de tip Francois. Ik heb net geen huisje kunnen regelen daar in de buurt, zit er ongeveer 2,5uur vandaan met wat ik wel kon boeken, maar misschien dat ik toch een poging ga wagen mocht er nog een mooie zonsondergang zich aandienen. En anders komt er zeker een volgende keer :)

  51. I love the smell of a bull market in the morning. I wonder how many people bailed out of stocks during Nov to March are still on sidelines kicking themselves. They are now stuck with two choices, stay out and how we double dip to the March Low or Get in and risk even further damage as they missed the runup and if there is another correction they will really get slaughtered. Dow 9K looks sweet to people who kept plowing in money the last 9 months. Dow 9K is ugly to someone who sold it all in March of 2009.
