Here Is Zdeno Chara Drinking Coca-Cola On The Bruins Bench Last Night (Video)

Were you wondering how a professional athlete like Zdeno Chara could possibly suffer from dehydration?  I believe we found the answer to that question during Game 7 last night between the Boston Bruins and the Montreal Canadiens.

Chara was spotted sucking back a bottle of Coca-Cola on the Bruins’ bench during the third period of last night’s game.  I guess the big defenseman’s health and hydration levels are going to have to suffer until Gatorade is willing to pay him enough money to drink their product during games.

Chara missed Game 2 of the Bruins’ series with the Canadiens after being hospitalized due to dehydration following Game 1.  We’ll let you know if his Game 7 beverage of choice causes him to be hospitalized again and miss Game 1 of Boston’s second-round series against the Philadelphia Flyers.
