    Default Phoney Tiger Woods Gatorade

    Gatorade, oops I mean G, with fake Tiger Woods labels were spotted in Colorado stores. The fake labels have Tiger's picture and the name "Unfaithful". Investigators have no idea how they got on shelves and if it is real Gatorade in the containers.

    I heard about that on the Denver radio news the other day. Funny.

    I have to wonder how they actually made them up, then how they got them "planted"

    I just checked, and I'm a little surprised not to find one of these for sale on eBay. (or it could be this is something they'd not allow?)

    I'm guessing that this prank was done at the stores.
    Some "under ground" group probably paid a store clerk
    for access to a few boxes of Gatorade.

    USA Today says a guy was busted for planting these in three stores.

    Zero feedback, and can't even spell Gatorade? Hmm.

    Yeah, and no picture, this seems like a hoax or a scam.

    I was kind of thinking they deliberately misspelled it as so to get around eBay censorship. But the no picture part, that is highly suspicious.
