    The Phillies got the shaft.  Where’s the love General Mills

    Our very own World Series Champions are nowhere to be found on the Wheaties box. 

    Why complain?  Well, from 2004 to 2007, World Series Champs have been featured on the box, like Boston’s David Ortiz and Josh Beckett.

    But who’s the Wheaties king now?

    Bryan Clay-- Gold medalist decathlete from the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

    Not to take away from Clay’s accomplishments, but come on! 

    We have to agree with the 700 Level and Home Run Derby on this one—the Phillies got the shaft.

    General Mills, stick Brad Lidge, Cole Hamels, or the Phanatic on the box!

    In the meantime, take a gander at some of the Wheaties box designs local bloggers put together.  And if you have designs of your own, send them to us!
