With all the craziness in the final moments of Super Bowl 47, Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh avoided the usually infamous Gatorade shower.
Well, that was kind of a letdown. Because of the craziness of the last few moments of the Baltimore Ravens' 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl 47, there was no winner in Gatorade Dump 2013. With it being a push, the books will likely give people their money back.
My condolences to all of the flavors that did not get dumped on this night. Perhaps there's an explanation for the lack of a Gatorade shower? Here are some potential reasons:
Yellow was the favorite going in at 13/10, but I think Rob Gronkowski mistook it for Red Bull and made too many mixed drinks with it over the course of the week's festivities.
Clear/Water was at 3/1, but let's be honest, that's just boring as hell and had no chance.
Orange was also at 3/1, but who the heck drinks orange Gatorade? Maybe you do, but I sure don't.
Red was at 5/1, however, the entire supply was contaminated with deer antler spray and had to be tossed.
Blue was at 15/2, but that had absolutely no chance because Beyonce drank it all prior to her halftime performance that knocked the lights out. DESTINY'S CHILD BACK!
Green was last at 10/1, probably because it was too reminiscent of the vomit spewed all over Bourbon Street from raging Super Bowl parties.
Curiously, purple wasn't even on the list, despite the fact that one of the Ravens' primary colors is purple. Perhaps Joe Webb's playoff performance just stunk up that color too much.
