Yep, I went there. A-maize-ing. Sure, “a-maze-ing” would have worked, too, but let’s just say I have an “ear” for what works best. And yeah, that makes no sense at all.

Sure, cornfield mazes dedicated to sports teams or athletes is nothing new (see here, here, here, here, here — nor is my use of corn maze puns — sigh), the creations nevertheless fascinate us every time a new one sprouts up.

Anyway, Lisa and Steve Cooper, die-hard Toronto Blue Jays fans created a corn maze featuring their beloved baseball’s team’s logo in a cornfield on their a farm located in Zephyr, Ontario.

There was so much hype and we thought this is going to be one heck of a year to get behind the Blue Jays,” Lisa Cooper said. “It was non-stop Blue Jays everywhere and we wanted to support the team and show our support.”

Although it’s hard to believe, Lisa Cooper insists that creating a corn maze with such intricate detail is “really as simple as Grade 6 math,” the couple — who have plenty of experience in the corn maze game — simply planted 10 acres of corn with no gaps then they outline the logo’s shape with flags and the rest is accomplished with a little help through which the shape is refined.

And while the Blue Jays haven’t had the greatest of seasons, currently languishing in last place in the AL East with a 57-70 record, Lisa Cooper says she and her husband cheer on the team through thick and thin.

“There was so much hype and we thought this is going to be one heck of a year to get behind the Blue Jays,” she said. “It was non-stop Blue Jays everywhere and we wanted to support the team and show our support.”

Gotta support the team. And no, I don’t think that’s corny at all. Yeah, I went there. Again.
