Gatorade

Tour de Kale 2008, Denton, NC Bike Ride Inline Skate Review

Denton Farmpark, Denton, NC is becoming a home away from home for me every June. Hundreds of cyclists and a skater or three met at the park out in the country to honor Kale's superbly supported charity ride last Saturday, June 21st 2008. Let me tell you, the Denton folk know how to mix gatorade at the rest stops! Not a watered-down barrell out there.

A Moment of Silence for Mr. Gatorade

Gatorade inventor, Robert Cade died today, aged 80. Here's a yahoo news report. In the obit, Cade is quoted as saying that when he first drank (an early version of?) Gatorade, he threw up. It also says that the company that took over the licensing rights, Stokely - Van Camp, hated the name Gatorade, but found out that the name was a hit with the general public, so they left it.

All I can say is thank you for helping me stay out of the emergency room on many a 90 degree F day, Mr. Cade!
