1970s Gatorade “Pro” Squeeze Bottle Offer

Not being very athletic as a kid, I was not exactly sure what Gatorade was for, but I knew I wanted one of these Squeeze bottles like the one I saw on TV. Only with the squeeze bottle and its angled straw could I get the needed hydration I needed to ride my bike for two blocks or play wiffle ball for 30 minutes on a summer day. Since my parents were unwilling to pick me up one, I showed them and refused all manner of activity, making me the un-hydrated and un-athletic person that I am today.
