NEW YORK – Add Gatorade to the list of endorsement deals that Tiger Woods has lost. A representative for the drink, sold by PepsiCo Inc., confirmed late Friday 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."

The spokewoman said Gatorade would continue its relationship with the Tiger Woods Foundation.

Well, it is marketed as a sports drink, not a pimp drink. Maybe he should do an episode of “Pimp My Ride.”

In Gatorade’s defense, it is kind of uncomfortable to pair Tiger Woods with the slogan “Is It In You?”

Considering their slogan, that's pretty much a no-brainer:

I kinda like the idea of a commercial with Tiger’s wife drowning him with a bucket of Gatorade.

I guess that whole “is it in you” advert theme just wasn’t working out.

I was thinking they might bring back the "Get a Tiger in your Tank" slogan. Guess not.

All of his big sponsors will drop him like a bad habit. One at a time..

Some here refused to believe it a few months ago.

Who wants to be represented by a lying cheater?

kind of a no brainer.

Had to wait for the store stocks to dwindle, I'm guessing.

Just for the sake of it let’s leave out the rounds he had with the whores. Why would any company have this guy endorsing their products it he ain't playing golf?

I believe that is corporate-speak for "ESAD, SCUMBAG!!!"

Personally, I think some of his advertisers dumped him because they saw an excuse to get out of a pre-recession endorsement contract which probably paid him based on a pre-2008 economy.

I'm waiting for one company to embrace the new Tiger and simply alter their ad campaign. For instance, I saw a billboard with Tiger and a Tag Hauer watch. Instead of scrapping the campaign, they could use the same picture and add the caption: "If it weren't for my Tag Hauer watch, I'd have been caught much sooner. Tag Hauer - the most accurate watch in the world."

I think they’re talking about a sports geek, and his sponsors.
