Redskins: The Breakfast Cereal

Posted by Matt Terl on September 8, 2009 – 12:29 pm

For those frustrating mornings when this blog, the rest of Redskins.com, the myriad of other Redskins blogs, the sports section of the newspaper, Comcast SportsNet’s SportsRise show, the two sportstalk radio stations in the area, and all the other Redskins delivery methods are simply not sufficient for your Redskins-related needs, there is now a solution.

It’s Breakfast Blitz cereal, available at Harris Teeter grocery stores throughout the DMV.

Because it would probably be unwise to associate an NFL team with a cereal with zero nutritional content, this tastes much closer to Honey Nut Cheerios than anything else, and does not contain any marshmallows, crunch berries, or yogurt-covered granola clusters. And it tastes much, much better than the other Redskins-related breakfast option of opening a Wheaties box from one of the Super Bowl wins. (Cheaper, too.)

Chris Cooley and my cluttered desk are not included with cereal purchase, although there is a “Breakfast With The Rookies” sweepstakes advertised on the back of the box.

So that’s breakfast conquered. Coming up next, Redskins: The Flamethrower. The kid’ll love it.

(For those of you who don’t immediately recognize 22 year old movie quotes, the explanation for that last paragraph — and the title of the post, too — after the jump.)

Ah, Spaceballs. A movie that really, really hasn’t aged well.
