Today's Tidbit... Football and Water
I’m working on a full article about football and the long battle over withholding water during practice. In the meantime, here’s an image of several Purdue players in the mid-1930s, one of which hogs the ladle from the shared water bucket.
While the Boilermakers were scooping community water from a bucket, Stanford’s smarty boys already had eight years’ experience drinking from a pressurized tank dispensing its water through multiple nozzles. Those Bay Area fellas were into multi-tasking and efficient systems way back when.
Of course, it was a bunch of Florida guys that put the Gator in Gatorade and we’ll cover that in the full article.
