Back in the day you weren’t considered a sports superstar until you had made it onto a box of Wheaties. I don’t know how much that distinction still means to the culture at large but to those of a certain age it’s somewhat of a big deal. So as an old person let me say it’s pretty cool to see our very own Adrian All-Day AP All-Natural Peterson gracing the front of a Wheaties box. He’s up there with Bruce Jenner now. What bigger honor could a man receive?
My question on this is, do you buy the AD Wheaties box and then eat the Wheaties or do you preserve the box intact so you can pass it down as a family heirloom? Of course the obvious answer is, you buy two boxes of AD Wheaties and eat only one. Best of both worlds there.
And for those asking, no, I don’t believe eating the AD Wheaties will give you AD-like powers. Slamming a box of AD Wheaties will not allow you to run over Packer defenders like they were pathetic plastic dummies. Hammering down a whole box of AD Wheaties will not help you to recuperate from an ACL tear. Though I suppose it couldn’t hurt to try.
