View Full Version : My One Gripe About Super Bowl XLIII

can we PLEASE learn how to do a proper Gatorade shower!? PLEASE!? i mean, we've seen some good ones and we've seen some bad ones, but come on guys! either perfect the art or nix the idea completely. i know it's tradition and all, but if you can't do it right...you shouldn't even try it at all. haha!

i'm not being totally serious about this. it's all in fun. =)

lol nah its cool dude, i feel the same way haha. But I mean, I think it falls half on the coach too. The best one I've seen in recent memory would be when they won XL...Cowher willingly embraced the Gatorade shower. I don't think Tomlin was real into it haha

Tomlin hates those showers, and as a team, we should stop the trend. We shouldn't have tried it and just did the ole school Carry the Coach off the Field move.

I don't know why we even bothered with that tired cliche. The Gatorade bath jumped the shark about 10 years ago.

Maybe we should start a new tradition instead, like instead of the coach getting dumped with Gatorade, he takes a huge bong hit right there on the sideline, and then says it was only tobacco.

One celebration you put the coach on your shoulders, meaning you are placing him above the team, the other you are dosing him in freezing cold sugar-water. I know if I was coaching which one I'd rather want.

Yea I'm all for carrying the coach

Yah, that was dumb, they need to stop the shower thing, its over. And Tomlin doesnt like it, why do it.

My one gripe...giving up a 13 point lead with the best defense in the game...but oh well, that just allowed Ben to shine.

At LEAST 10 years ago.

If I was a HC, the first rule I'd make is "gimme a Gatorade bath, get fined $50K."

There's gotta be a better way to celebrate a victory than that. Besides, the Jints started that IIRC, and who wants to follow something a bunch of Noo Yawkers came up with?

Carry the coach!!
