PACKING IN A NUTRITIOUS BREAKFAST: FAVRE TO DON WHEATIES BOX

          Packers QB Brett Favre will "decorate the cover of
     Wheaties cereal boxes this fall," according to Bob Wolfley
     of the MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL.  The boxes will have an
     action shot of Favre on the front and a picture on the back
     with a "brief biography."  Favre will join Bob Richards,
     Bruce Jenner, Mary Lou Retton, Chris Evert, Pete Rose,
     Walter Payton, Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods as the only
     athletes featured on national Wheaties packaging.  A General
     Mills spokesperson would not confirm the report.  In other
     Favre news, the Green Bay City Council voted 7-5 on Tuesday
     to send a proposal renaming part of a city street near his
     planned restaurant as "Brett Favre Pass" back to committee. 
     Some council members suggested that "living quarterbacks"
     are inappropriate choices for street names, and said that
     government officials, war veterans and business leaders are
     "better choices."  Green Bay Alderman Eugene Schmitz: "I'm
     not saying he's not a good football player.  But what if he
     commits a crime?" (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 5/21)
