Dale Earnhardt Jr. fans aren’t the only ones robbing America blind these days. A man in a NASCAR jacket that had a logo for Cheerios, which sponsors Clint Bowyer and used to sponsor Bobby Labonte, was part of a two-man team that robbed a home in Erie, Pa., last week. A neighbor called the police when the men dropped a television while they were trying to jump a fence in the backyard of the residence. So maybe they were Earnhardt fans after all.
The NASCAR Cheerios jacket is proving to be popular with scofflaws. A man carrying an assault rifle and wearing a Cheerios jacket robbed a Tennessee store in August.
Oh, Cheerios, why must your jacket design be as fabulous as your cereal is bland?
