If I drank after a person infected with HIV, could I become infected?

I was playing basketball and drank from a stranger's water bottle. Now i'm paranoid.

The virus in the bodily fluid from an infected person must enter the bloodstream of another person in order for that individual to become infected. Simply drinking after a person with HIV isn't a problem. You are more likely to catch a cold in the way you describe.
