Chicago White Sox logo mowed into Illinois cornfield simply ‘a-maize-ing’ (video)


Corn mazes mowed and manipulated to resemble sports logos, sports stars and other sports-related fodder is a long-held rite of fall (see here and here and here and here and here), when farms routinely open up their fields to allow families to get lost among the corn stalks.

The Odyssey Fun Farm located in Tinley Park, Ill., gets the annual tradition off to a dazzling start with an incredibly intricate corn maze designed to resemble the team logo used by the Chicago White Sox from 1976-1990.

Wow. Imagine the time and effort, not to mention the planning, that goes into creating one of these marvelous mazes. A remarkable spectacle, indeed.

In fact, one could say it is “a-maze-ing.” Or even, “a-maize-ing,” if one should elect to utilize with term for the “large grain plant domesticated by indigenous peoples in Mesoamerica in prehistoric times” (thanks, Wikipedia!).

You know, either way. A pun is a pun is a pun, even when it is excessively “corny.”
