What is the Super Bowl Gatorade bath?

The Gatorade bath – or Gatorade shower as it’s also known – usually comes towards the end of the game when the result is all but official or after the final whistle blows and a Super Bowl winner is crowned.

Players grab a cooler full of Gatorade (or water) and ambush their coach on the sideline with a freezing shower of ice cubes and colorful sports drink. This fun moment contrasts the stressfulness and seriousness head coaches carry into the Super Bowl and kicks off the postgame celebrations.
