What's the name of this amazing spray? (details inside)

Asked by 2davidc8 (4619 points ) 3 months ago

So I’ve been watching the Soccer World Cup in Brazil.
Lots of times each game, it seems, I see two players collide and one or both would end up lying flat on the pitch writhing in pain. Then the trainers would come out and spray something on whatever body part is hurting.
The game resumes, and before you know it, the player is racing down the field like a young gazelle.
What is the name of this spray? (Name of the chemical, please.)

It is mostly a cooling agent. It doesn’t really do anything but numb the area for a few minutes. And don’t forget that making yourself look hurt in football is considered a skill. So the doctors are in on the faking the hurt game too.

It is cooling spray for soft tissue injuries, such as strains and sprains, ruptures and minor burns. Cooling effect lasts for about 15 minutes. There are many sprays and gels used to make injuries cooler on the market.

A guy I know managed to get hold of the stuff once and went around the hospital wards spraying it everywhere, it emptied the hospital inside thirty minutes, He had to use some on himself outside when a frail old lady knocked him over while doing cartwheels. Expensive stuff though.

@DAVEJAY100 Yes, I imagine the stuff would be expensive, but what is it (name, please)?

It’s called “Revivabod” 2davidc8, but keep it quiet, some say it’s made from grated banana seed, vinegar and Marijuana essence. You can get it from Wallmart but you’ve got to order years in advance and well before the world cup competition. I’m intrigued to know why you want to get some, do you get kicked often ?

The stuff they spray in professional sporting events is one of the caines. Not cocaine, but lydocaine and/or procaine.
That’ll numb what ails ya.
