Jordan Spieth Teaming Up With Wheaties Is The Biggest No Brainer Ever

IRVING, Texas – Jordan Spieth will soon be in your local cereal aisle. The two-time major champion announced Tuesday at the AT&T Byron Nelson that he will be the next athlete featured on the famous Wheaties cereal box. “You grow up seeing your favorite athletes on these boxes and used to walk down the aisle of the grocery store whenever my mom used to drag me along and always want to see who was on the cover,” Spieth said. “To actually be on one is a pretty special dream come true.” Fittingly, Wheaties was Byron Nelson’s first endorsement. Ben Hogan, Babe Zaharias, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and Tiger Woods are among the golfers who have also had their own limited-edition boxes. Spieth said he will be on about four million Wheaties boxes nationwide beginning in October.

Maybe the biggest no brainer in the history of time. Jordan Spieth gracing the cover of a Wheaties box. So much so that I think I had deja vu when it was announced. Spieth was born to be on a Wheaties box. He’s the Golden Boy of this golf generation. The clean cut kid who’s packed with talent and has the trophies to go along with it. Jordan Spite’s middle name should be Wheaties. I mean he’s named after the guy who was pictured on a Wheaties box more than anyone. And not to take anything away from this beautiful marriage but Wheaties stink and anyone who doesn’t think they stink is lying. Anyone who eats Wheaties without a dump truck of sugar is also lying. Obviously Wheaties has a rich history of putting the biggest athletes on their box but that does nothing in terms of taste. Wheaties could put anyone on their box and it’ll still taste like the cardboard box in your grandma’s attic. Other than that though, awesome news for Wheaties.
