Gatorade – First developed by Florida University researchers looking to combine water, carbohydrates and electrolytes to keep athletes hydrated, Gatorade has become so much more. From the now famous, almost necessary “baths” of coaches after big wins to the sponsorships of big-time athletes, Gatorade is a sports essential.
Who hasn’t wanted to chug some lemon lime (Fruit punch? Frost-Glacier Freeze?) after sweating it out at the gym or the court?

1997 – The rematch added fuel to a heated rivalry on June 28, 1997, but few could believe their eyes, watching the most vicious heavyweight bite his opponent’s flesh and spit it out. It was so bizarre. Mike Tyson was already seen as a lunatic, but this sealed the deal with absolute certainty. And people watched: 1.99 million households bought the pay-per-view, a record at the time.

1993 – At the ESPYs, a cancer-stricken Jim Valvano gave one of the most inspirational speeches the world has ever heard. He reminded us: “don’t give up, don’t ever give up.” Valvano died eight weeks later, but his lasting image was one of hope.

1989 – It was Game 3 of the World Series… The San Francisco Giants were taking on the crosstown Oakland A’s. The Bay Area World Series. But it wasn’t the game that made headlines. It was the earthquake that hit during the game.                                             The largest earthquake ever to be caught on national television. It stalled the World Series for 10 days while a city tried to put itself back together. One good thing about the quake happening during the game is that officials say it may have saved lives because people left work early to watch

1972 – After a full-scale drug testing program was instituted, most expected substance abuse to drop off. Szymon Kolecki, Mabel Fonseca and of course Marion Jones headline a large throng of unnatural stars who were caught. With each positive test and tarnished legacy, the cloud of suspicion widens, not only in track, but in all sports.

1970 – A plane carrying 37 player and eight members of the coaching staff of the Marshall football team crashed during a November trip. It was something that could have devastated a program completely,  but Marshall fought back and persevered with new coach Jack Lengyel, winning two games that year— most notably an emotional 15-13 game against Xavier in the home opener. It was a lesson in overcoming all obstacles and carrying on for generations to come.

1920 – Two players have died in the history of Major League Baseball while playing, though August 16, 1920 is the most infamous, as a ball became lethal.
Mays, playing for the Yankees at the time, hit Chapman (of the Indians) in the head, who would pass away from his injuries. It led to the rule that umpires must replace the baseball when it became dirty, though batting helmets wouldn’t become standard until three decades later.
