Typically, you wait until after the football game to douse yourself in Gatorade. At Sunday’s game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Arizona Cardinals, however, one player apparently couldn’t wait that long.

While returning a punt 18 yards, Eagles returner Jeremy Maclin was suddenly forced out of bounds and into the Cardinals’ sidelines. Waiting for him there was a table full of Gatorade.

The Cardinals wound up defeating the Eagles 24 to 20, perhaps as retribution for the loss of their Gatorade.
