It was on Oct. 20, 1985 in a game between the New York Giants and The Washington Redskins. The Giants had won 17-3, but defensive lineman Jim Burt had been worked on hard that week by coach Bill Parcells.
In response to the harassment, Burt asked the coach's favorite player (Harry Carson) to help him out and dump some water on the coaches head. With no water to be found, Carson picked up the next best thing, the Gatorade bucket. The rest, as they say, is history.
Now, if you win a championship game in football, you get a Gatorade Bath!
Come meet these two innovators, along with fellow Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor on Oct 12th
