An event in which an NFL team dumps the cooler of Gatorade on its coach after a regular season win, well before a division or playoff spot is locked up. This term was coined after Baltimore Ravens players gave coach John Harbaugh a Gatorade bath after winning a regular season game in Pittsburgh in week 8 of the 2011 season. It was their Super Bowl.
Harbaugh was also given a Baltimore Gatorade bath after the Ravens defeated the San Francisco 49ers a few weeks later; a team coached by John's brother, Jim.
Holy crap! We beat a team who has owned us for years! This calls for a Baltimore Gatorade bath!
