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?
