Boise State Corn Maze is Here (Picture)

We’ve seen a Tim Thomas corn maze tribute, a John Calipari corn maze, and now we have a Boise State football maze. This corn maze comes from Linder Farms in Meridian, Idaho.

Pictured is the Boise State logo, a quarterbacking throwing a ball, and the new Mountain West Conference logo. The Idaho Statesman says this is the third straight year Linder Farms has featured a Boise State theme. The maze is mighty impressive, but if they had any real skills they would have made the quarterback a lefty. Just sayin’.

John Calipari’s Face Carved into Corn Maze by Kentucky Fans (Picture)

A Lexington, Ky. family has carved John Calipari’s face into a 10 acre field of corn. The maze is part of the Giants Corn Maze at Kelley Farms, a Halloween attraction that’s open from late September-October. In addition to the Calipari maze, they also will have a basketball-themed word puzzle.

So why did they do it? Duh, they’re like totally hardcore Kentucky fans!

“We think a lot of Coach Calipari,” said farm owner John Kelley. “He’s almost like part of the family. Kelley. Calipari. I think we might be related, somewhere way back,” he laughs. “Really, we just want to let Coach Cal know how much he means to Kentucky and how much Kentucky appreciates having him lead our basketball team.”

Calipari saw the maze and wondered if his nose was really that big. I’m wondering if they’re going to regret creating the maze after Calipari inevitably gets popped for an NCAA violation and has to leave the school. Until that point, they can celebrate him in their Field of Dreams. And between this and the Tim Thomas field, what’s up with all the corn maze tributes lately?

Tim Thomas Celebrated in Corn Maze

The Boston Bruins have been celebrated for their Stanley Cup win over the Vancouver Canucks. They ran up a $156K bar tab at a club, most of which was on the house. Each of the players have had their day with the Stanley Cup (although Nathan Horton’s was cut short). But this may be the best tribute of all.

As Puck Daddy shares with us, the Sherman Farm corn maze in East Conway, New Hampshire carved that image of Bruins goalie Tim Thomas hoisting the Stanley Cup into the field. Beginning on September 17th, visitors can explore the maze for $9. There’s little doubt it took tons of time to make that creation. It probably didn’t take a whole summer like the Angel Stadium model, but plenty of detail went into it and it was worthwhile. I wouldn’t fly out to the East Coast to check it out, but if I were in the area I’d definitely take a look.
