You will need some GATORade when you watch a game in The Swamp.

The Swamp is insanely warm and humid during college football season. As a fan, you are bound to sweat off a couple of pounds thanks to the world’s largest outdoor sauna. However, Florida offers you a great solution, Gatorade.

By now most people know the back story about a Florida assistant coach, Ray Graves, asking researchers at the University of Florida in the mid-1960′s to find a beverage to help replace fluids in his football players lost due to sweating in hot environments. The solution was Gatorade.

Everyone has surely enjoyed Gatorade at some point in time. However, it is a little iconic sipping on a Gatorade inside the Swamp. My standard rule involves rarely, if ever, purchasing concessions inside the stadium due to the ridiculous prices, but I did enjoy Gatorade on my visits to the Swamp. You need the Gatorade to help keep you hydrated prices by damned.

    Is “Gatorade” code for the urine-filled water bottles yall are known for chucking at Tennessee and other opposing fans inside the Swamp?
