Ah, to be a professional athlete.

While we all have cravings for certain foods, most of us do not have free tickets to sporting events that we can offer in return for someone delivering that craving to us.

We've seen athletes swap tickets for delicacies before, like ex-Milwaukee Brewers pitcher John Axford trading tickets for Krispy Kreme Burgers, and frankly it's a brilliant tactic.

Following in Axford's footsteps, two Anaheim Ducks pulled a similar move this week with a delicious-looking new cereal from Cap'n Crunch. Center Nick Bonino and winger Dustin Penner were craving Sprinkled Donut Crunch, so they sent out this request to their followers.



Sure enough, a Twitter user named Trevor Bloom delivered for the Ducks. The following caption accompanied this Instagram photo:

"Went Down to Honda Center today to give @dd2527 Cap’n Crunch’s Sprinkled Donut Crunch and got free tickets to tomorrow game #fanfavorite #dustinpenner #nickbonino #nhl #anaheimducks #nicestplayer #quackquack"

Apparently in addition to some free tickets, Penner left a good impression on Bloom.


And, perhaps most importantly, Penner and Bonino were satisfied with the cereal.
