Breakfast of Champions' Sons

If only this week's objet d'eBay, a Wheaties box featuring America's most medaled winter Olympian, Apolo Anton Ohno, featured Yuki (specifically, not Yoko) Ohno (no, not Ono) on the package as well — not that anyone seems to have thought about that — it would no doubt be worth so much more than its current $7 (starting) bid.

Yuki is the single father who raised the speedskating Ohon. Despite those heroics, he gets little of the media fuss spent on Michael Phelps "single" mom, Debbie. Is it because Yuki has a hair salon? Is it because he is a man? Whatever the reason, it's not right and just might be holding the economy back since his lack of prominence seems to be keeping down the price of previously owned Wheaties boxes, among other possible complications.
