The Gatorade Story

GatoradeA recent blog post on the success of Gatorade is worth the read at .

As you may already know, the etymology of the Gatorade name is a result of Dr. Robert Cade developing the drink at the University of Florida, home of the "Gators."

Gatorade is a neologism combining "Gator," the clipping of Alligator, and adding "ade" to the name.
