One for the Gipper
The New York Giants popularized the “Gatorade shower.” During their 1986 season leading up to their Super Bowl victory, each win was celebrated by linebacker Harry Carson dumping a cooler full of Gatorade on head coach, Bill Parcells.
When the Giants visited the White House shortly after, they honored Ronald Reagan with a drier version of their victory routine. Surrounded by the Secret Service, Carson emptied a bucket of popcorn over the President.
