We invented Gatorade. You’re welcome.
Created for University of Florida football players in 1965, it’s now a staple for gym rats, hangovers, and mathletes the world over.
It inspires the best of the best Maya Rudolph, Joaquin Phoenix, Against Me!, Sister Hazel (come on, that one song was catchy), Bo Diddley, Tom Petty, part of The Eagles -- they all call G'ville home. And that doesn't even count alums. Gator grads include Erin Andrews, Bob Vila, the dude from Office Space who wants his s-s-stapler (Stephen Root), and Wendy Thomas. Yes, of Wendy’s.
