Dehydration Relief

from the Toronto Star,

Toronto Maple Leafs tough guy wade Belak depends on a drink made for babies to help him through an NHL season.

For years the 6-foot-5, 221-pound enforcer has been drinking Pedialyte, a drink designed to help re-hydrate toddlers with diarrhea.

But Belak’s original reason for drinking from the bottle with a teddy bear on its label was decidedly grown-up.

“You really want to know the truth, why I started drinking Pedialyte?” he said yesterday at the team’s practice facility.

“I used to drink it for hangovers.”

Belak isn’t the only athlete making trips to the baby aisle for the drink.
