So, I'm sitting at my desk watching The Biggest Loser and drinking a bottle of grape Gatorade. I has led me to reflect on my love of Gatorade. It is one of my favorite beverages. My love of Gatorade goes back to the late 1980s when I was a little soccer player. After practice or a game, there was always a cold bottle of Gatorade waiting for me in a cooler on the sidelines. It was usually the lemon-lime flavor or orange. These two flavors have withstood the test of time. I still find myself reaching for the yellow or orange bottles when I go to get Gatorade after a run. But I have also learned to love the other flavors as well. During high school, my favorite flavor was watermelon. I think I was attracted as much to the pinkness of the liquid as I was to the taste. And I'm not just a loyalist to Gatorade. I love Powerade too. My favorite item off the menu as Sonic is a Powerade slush. The blue Powerade is my favorite! Although I haven't seen All Sport on the shelves in years...their fruit punch flavor was my favorite. There have been some newcomers to the scene. Accelerade is one. It's an acquired taste. The protein in it makes it have a thicker consistency. I really haven't quite acquired the taste for it yet. Cytomax is another. It's acceptable. I had it on the course at RNR San Antonio. The absolute worst is Ultima! Sugar-free sports drinks are just wrong!!! Hello?!?! We need sugar...we need the glycogen. I don't recommend Ultima...gross...gross...gross. Well, there are my thoughts on Gatorade and its companions.
Good luck to the Oklahoma Sooner women tonight. Wish I could watch you play, but my cheap a$$ doesn't have The Deuce. I'll check your scores in the morning.
