And for my money, if you are going to create a Boise State Corn Maze, it darn well better be Boise State-y and Corn Maze-y. Otherwise, what’s the point?
My provocative, controversial views regarding the relative quality of individual corn mazes notwithstanding, what you see above is the latest entry in the seemingly endless supply of sports-themed corn mazes which have been reported on in recent months (see Minnesota Twins Corn Maze here as an example). You see, Linder Farms in Meridian, Idaho grows corn. The proprietors of the farm are also huge Boise State Broncos fans. Put those two things together, some elbow grease and a lot of exact measurements and cutting and voila! You have yourself a Boise State Corn Maze, something that has been a staple at Linder Farms for three years now.
From the Idaho Statesman, via Dr. Saturday:
“We wanted to highlight the merger with the Mountain West conference,” said Sherrie Feist, co-owner of Linder Farms with husband, Randy. “We love the Broncos. I’ve grown up in the Valley, and I attended Boise State.”
She grew up in the Valley? Like, gag me with a spoon. Oh, not that Valley, you say. Whatever.
Anyway, the maze is open to the public and it only costs $10 for adults, $7 for children. So if you’re in their neck of the woods, why not stop by and have yourself a good time getting lost in a cornfield in Idaho? But here’s my question: given that it is Idaho, wouldn’t it be more apropos if, instead of corn, some enterprising Idahoan farmer created a subterranean potato maze? You know, because potatoes are a root vegetable — a tuber to be exact — not to mention it is the state vegetable after all. Yeah, that would be pretty expensive. Probably dangerous, too. And you probably wouldn’t even be able to see the potatoes, what with all the earth crumbling down upon you as you die a slow, terrifying, suffocating death.
You know, forget I even brought it up.
