Shaun White, Lindsey Vonn, and Seth Wescott score Wheaties boxes

winter-olympic-wheaties Apparently, I’ve been eating Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds for too long, because I didn’t even realize they still put athletes on Wheaties boxes. This, however, remains a huge honor, and Shaun White, Lindsey Vonn, and Seth Wescott are beyond stoked to have their boxes (pictured) hitting stores nationwide next month. Which one would you buy? I’d go Shaun White because that grin greeting me each morning would either make me happy or want to slap him (either way, I’d be moving!). And I’ll go ahead and cast a vote for Wescott on behalf of my 62-year-old mother, who’s been hot for him ever since he won his second snowboard cross gold (which is also the moment she learned what snowboard cross is).

    Lindsey Vonn on a box of Wheaties? That’s one box i’d love to munch on.

      Cardboard is not very good for your digestive system.

      • Nshi

        Wow. You is dumb.

  • crispy

    (OMG, this is totally the meanest comment I’ve ever written…) Does anyone really wanna look at Shaun White’s face while they’re eating?

    • Ceballos

      That’s pretty mean, but I wouldn’t even say that cracks your top 5 meanest comments. :)

      • crispy

        LOL… you are probably right. Those Twilight threads were pretty epic.

    • Lisa Simpson

      Actually, I wouldn’t mind, but my box of cereal tends to have a picture of Cap’mn Crunch on it.

    • Eric Stoltz

      Looks like me in mask, don’t it?

    • Ashley G.

      AWWWW, Crisy where have you been? have not seen you post for a while, and no, this is not your meanest comment ever, good effort nonetheless

  • Michelle

    Why is Shaun the only one who’s face is on the cover?? How come the other two don’t have a second picture too???

  • Ceballos

    I think I just heard Julia Mancuso punch another wall.

    • Lisa Simpson

      I thought I heard a loud noise, followed by the sound of a tiara being thrown across the room.

      • crispy

        No, that was Johnny Weir.

      • Not likely

        The chance that Johnny Weir and Julia Mancuso being so close to each other that Johnny actually being thrown across the room is about as likely as the 2018 Winter Olympics being held in Phoneix.

      • crispy

        Wow, you missed that joke entirely.

      • Not likely

        So explain it then, smarty pants.

      • Donna

        @Not Likely – I think what crispy means, or at least what I think she means, is that Johnny Weir threw the tiara across the room. But I must say, I like your take of it better. Imagine, Weir and Mancuso as an item!

      • Ceballos

        Not only that, but I believe that Mancuso is strong enough (and Weir is wispy enough) for Julia to actually be ale to throw Johnny across a room.

      • crispy

        And he would nail a spectacular, graceful landing on his feet, like a cat, then stand straight up and curtsy.

      • Donna

        There’s something about Johnny that makes me want to give him a big smooch. He’s just so darned cute! Like a little gay porcelain doll.

      • Amidala

        hahaha! he is adorable. and “a little gay porcelain doll”? haha

  • Ann

    I wish they would have given Evan Lysacek a box, too.

  • Chris

    You should try Honey Bunches of Oats with Pecans…..excellent!

  • Steph

    I’m totally on the Wescott train. Although I too had no idea who he was nor what snowboard crossing was…but he owned up that snowy turf! <3 Looove him <3

  • Barry

    They should have given the only true athletes at the Olympics – the USA hockey team – a group picture on the box. Not some stoner dudes like White & Westcott.

  • ariana

    apolo ohno! or did he have one previous years?

  • Amidala

    I don’t find Shaun all that attractive. and his face matches his hair in that picture on the cereal box.

  • Nate

    These cant be the real cover. Unless Weaties is sponsored by VISA.

    • Feiss

      Good catch, Trademark detective!

  • Barbie

    Thanks for writing such an easy-to-understand artilce on this topic.
