Mills, the makers of Wheaties cereal, "The Breakfast
of Champions", honored Mitchell this week by placing his picture
on the cover of their famous cereal box.
A company spokesman commented
that Mitchell was being honored partly for his "huge contribution
to sports journalism", and partly because he won the Warren
County Fair Baby Contest.
When asked for comment,
Mitchell replied, "I'm grateful and humbled for this honor.
It was quite nice of them to do this...especially since I'm more
of a Cheerios kind of guy."
