Endorsement Time

After winning multiple medals in Torino while carrying themselves with class, speedskaters Apolo Anton Ohno and Joey Cheek will be appearing on Wheaties boxes.

In related news, Shani Davis and Chad Hedrick will not be.

I'm kind of surprised that Wheaties didn't select a female Olympian as well, given the PC-mania that has surfaced in the sports/marketing world. Possibly Hannah Teter or Julia Mancuso??

True.

Ohno has definitely earned it though. Five medals in two Olympics. And Cheek gave all that money to humanitarian causes. Two class acts.

Hopefully, someone signs up Tanith Belbin for some endorsements. I wouldn't mind seeing her again before 2010.
