Gatorade Tiger will be discontinued.
“We decided several months ago to discontinue Gatorade Tiger Focus along with some other products to make room for our planned series of innovative products in 2010. We hope to share more about our 2010 plans soon.” ~Gatorade officials
Not so fast
Before you jump to the conclusion that a Tiger sponsor is reacting to the recent events, this discontinuation was announced in “Beverage Digest” on November 25th, two days before the Tiger chaos officially began.
Obviously if this product was a big seller they wouldn’t be discontinuing it. I guess I’m not the only one who thought Gatorade Tiger lacked in the flavor department. See my review of Gatorade Tiger from August 21, 2008 here.
Michael Jordan will be inducted into the NBA Hall Of Fame tonight. I loved watching MJ play, despite the fact that he put a dagger in my heart two years in a row when he beat my Utah Spazz Jazz in the NBA finals…
In honor of MJ, Gatorade has come out with an insane collector’s series which comes in an awesome case. Inside the case are three bottles with random info on Jordan as well as a flash drive with images of MJ.
This is sure to be worth a fortune on ebay some day.
How this relates to golf I’m not exactly sure. I’ll have to get back to you on this one.
There are a few more images of this cool schwag here.
