How did the Gatorade tradition start?

The New York Giants of the 1980s often receive credit for starting the tradition. Then-head coach Bill Parcells regularly received a Gatorade bath when the team won. The Gatorade tradition became even more prominent when the team won Super Bowl XXI over the Denver Broncos, and Parcells was drenched in front of a worldwide audience.

In the years that have followed, the shower has been part of celebrations in a number of other sports at various times. However, the Gatorade bath gets the most attention when it’s time for Super Bowl betting. Looking back to the results since 2001, here’s the complete color breakdown.
