From league fights to breaking records and staring in his own show on VH1, Terrell Owens doesn’t stop reigning the sports media.
Now T.O. has a new product to market: The extremely limited edition of T.O. Honey Nut Toasted Oats Cereal.
Starring on his own box cover, “T.O.’s” will only be sold at Tops supermarkets in western New York (Buffalo-Niagara region and the Greater Rochester area.) The cereal will hit the shelves at the end of July.
“Terrell’s signing with the Buffalo Bills has been a widely popular move locally, and we expected fans in western New York, central New York and northwest Pennsylvania will be eager to have a box of T.O.’s on their breakfast table,” said CEO of Tops supermarket, Frank Curci.
Some may call this the battle of the O’s against Owens’ cereal and the heart protecting Cheerios. A blogger on Yahoo sports, mark w, argued that despite the taste of the cereal would probably be good, “T.O. rips off Honey Nut Cheerios. Just like he assumes he is the greatest wide receiver ever, he cannot even have an original cereal made.”
In accepting the move, fans are convinced this is Buffalo’s year to make it big, since the early 90's in their four consecutive year Super Bowl appearances and no wins, but, some question if he will be able to play in subzero temperatures and snow.
Owens kept jersey No. 81, while James Hardy, sophomore wide receiver for the Bills and original wearer of No. 81, switched to No. 84.
