    Inventor of Gatorade passes away

    Dr. J. Robert Cade, 1927 - 2007
    Florida Gators team physician invented drink known worldwide
    By Valerie J. Nelson, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer
    November 28, 2007
    Dr. J. Robert Cade, who invented the sports drink Gatorade more than 40 years ago to help the University of Florida football team stay hydrated and in turn inspired the multimillion-dollar sports beverage industry, has died. He was 80.

    Cade, a medical researcher and kidney specialist who had been in declining health for some time, died Tuesday at Shands, a private hospital at the University of Florida Medical Center in Gainesville, the university announced.

    On Nov. 16, Cade attended a ceremony to dedicate a historical marker on campus in honor of "Gatorade's Birthplace . . . the sports drink that started an industry."

    I hope he didn't die of dehydration.

    I hear the Priest is getting a cooler dumped on him at the end of the ceremonies.
