Did aliens do it? No, an even scarier set of species is responsible: Kentucky fans.
When it comes to appreciation and adoration, you can't get cornier than this.
Kelley Farms, located in Lexington, Ky., has gone out and designed a corn maze 10 acres large and is turning it into an event. Of course it has. This is Kentucky! That's pretty impressive, though I think Cal looks a little to chunky in the chin. Corn mazes are great weekend activities in the fall all across America. But how often do we see something like this? Frankly, I'm surprised it took this long.
“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.”
In addition to the image of Coach Cal, this year’s maze will also feature a basketball-themed word puzzle, spread throughout the winding paths.
This is not new territory for Kelley Farms, as they've carved many an image into the bluegrass carpet in years past. Guys like Daniel Boone, Abraham Lincoln and Henry Clay have all be designs made visible from the sky. The maze will open later this month, on Sept. 23, and will operate until the end of October.Photo via WKYT
