Interesting....
 

A “Gatorade shower” happens after a significant victory in sports and involves dumping Gatorade on the winning coach’s head. The tradition started in 1984 when Jim Burt of the New York Giants doused coach Bill Parcells with a cooler full of Gatorade. Parcells was also the recipient of the first Gatorade shower at a Super Bowl, when the Giants won in 1987. Following their championship win, the team was invited to the White House by then-President Ronald Reagan. As a joke, the team dumped a Gatorade cooler filled with popcorn over Reagan’s head, which helped solidify the shower’s place in sports history.
