There are the tales of its use as a cramping remedy. There's its starring role in the infamous 2000 Pickle Juice Game in the NFL. And, of course, it's also no stranger to the NHL, where players have thirsted after all that hard work on the ice.

But how often do we see it drained straight from a pickle jar?
