during games, for kids wearing full wool uniforms in September heat. Amazing that something so biologically fundamental was just a complete mystery.

When I was in the band 30 years later, I didn’t figure out that I needed to hydrate until my sophomore year. Early on I was so drained during games, lethargy to the point of apathy, and it was like a revelation when I discovered the miracle of just drinking Gatorade. I mean, how stupid.
