From Super Bowl to the Breakfast Bowl: Hakeem Nicks Celebrates His Championship Title with Cereal and Milk
WASHINGTON, Feb. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Super Bowl Champion and New York Giant Hakeem Nicks isn't only a champion on the field; he's a champion at the breakfast table too. Nicks starts each day with lowfat milk at breakfast, and today is no different.
Nicks celebrates last night's win with a bowl of cereal and lowfat milk. Milk has the nutrients he needs to start the day off right, whether he's headed to the stadium or offseason training. The wide receiver joins the likes of Aaron Rodgers, Michael Strahan and John Elway as the star of his very own Milk Mustache ad in today's USA Today – the 16th time a player from the winning team has won his own ad.
The ad copy reads, "Nice finish. Victory tastes sweet, but training for next year starts at breakfast the next morning. So, fuel up to play 60. And remember, it's just not breakfast without milk."
Nicks also participates in Fuel Up to Play 60 -- a fun, interactive program that encourages kids to eat right and be active for at least 60 minutes every day.
