Add Gatorade to the list of endorsement deals that Tiger Woods has lost. A representative for the drink, sold by PepsiCo Inc., confirmed late yesterday that it had ended its relationship with the golfer, who made a lengthy public apology last week for his infidelities. "We no longer see a role for Tiger in our marketing efforts and have ended our relationship," a Gatorade spokeswoman said. "We wish him all the best. " She said Gatorade would continue its relationship with the Tiger Woods Foundation.

First, some Gatorade trivia: Michael Jordan, the high-flying prince of the city and global emissary for Gatorade, actually drinks the stuff. The Chicago Bulls basketball star was recently observed brown-bagging his favorite flavor, citrus cooler, at one of Chicago's tonier restaurants. Americans currently drink about 200 million gallons of Gatorade a year. No, that won't fill Lake Michigan. But it does buoy owner Quaker Oats Co.'s annual sales by more than $700 million.

Springside Chestnut Hill Academy has turned to Chris Lubanski, a former standout at Kennedy-Kenrick, to be its new baseball coach. In 2003, Lubanski, a hard-hitting and speedy outfielder, was named Gatorade's national high school player of the year and was selected by the Kansas City Royals with the fifth pick in the first round of the amateur draft. His eight-year, minor-league career included a 2010 stint with the Las Vegas 51s, then the Toronto Blue Jays' triple-A affiliate in the Pacific Coast League.

I can guarantee that anyone who has ever picked up a basketball and shot it into a hoop has at least once envisioned himself to be like Michael Jordan. "Be like Mike," the Gatorade commercial urges us as images of men, women and children of all races attempt to perform Jordan-esque acrobatics in their back yards or playgrounds. Michael Jordan is a symbol. To the world, he represents the game of basketball and the United States. To Americans, he is the embodiment of excellence and superiority.

After 11 years of quiet brilliance and impeccable style, Harry Carson has finally become famous this season - by throwing Gatorade on his coach. So as Carson stood on a dusty field in Costa Mesa yesterday and began another painful inquisition before Sunday's Super Bowl XXI, he squinted into the radiant California sun and tried not to think dark thoughts. It wasn't easy. In fact, it wasn't possible. "Everybody talks about all the recognition this kind of event brings, but people don't recognize me for what I've done in my career or even what I've done this season," said the linebacker - and the spirit - of the New York Giants.

NEW YORK — Cliff Lee walked back into the visitors' clubhouse, covered in Gatorade. The back of his neck was numb from the ice, and his No. 33 jersey was sticking to his back. Just seconds earlier, Phillies teammates had dumped the contents of the orange Gatorade cooler, mostly ice at that point, down the back of Lee, who didn't see it coming. They did it partly out of celebration, partly out of friendly mockery. Lee was fine with it, even told Roy Halladay he was glad they did it. For the first time all season, Lee walked through the dugout and to the clubhouse a winner — and no amount of sticky Gatorade could put a damper on that.

"Tim, I . . . uhhh . . . need to talk to you about one thing," GFS athletic director Katie Bergstrom said, searching for the right words. "I needed to ummm . . . let you know that . . . uhhh . . .
