Your move, Chicago.

    Two things that intrigue me about this:
    1. How the farmer planned it out on such a macro scale presumably without the help of arial assistance?
    2. How Craig finds this stuff?
    recaptcha: vouched activists

    Not sure about the farmer, but I just saw someone else linking this on Twitter. Who found it first, I have no idea.

    That is flat out awesome!

    What a waste of space! The team is looking like crap. I wouldn’t waste my time this year…

    Very cool.

    Not so fast Craig: Before we attribute this to a bored farmer, I think we should consider Crop Circles or an Alien presence ala the Nazca lines in Peru. Besides, if there was an Alien explanation for this, I think it may also shed some light on what makes LaRussa smarter than everyone else as well.

    I checked the public records for the property. It is, in fact, owned by Erich von Daniken.

    Maybe they can rearrange the trash on Staten Island landfill to make a Mets logo.

    Have you ever noticed that when a fan of your team does something this whacked, it’s inspired, and when a fan of another team does it, it’s lunacy?
    I’m not a Cards fan (nor do I dislike them), and I find this to be inspired lunacy.

    I may be crazy, but it keeps me from going insane.

    Best comment of the day right here. :applause:

    I’m a Cubs fan. That is awesome.

  13. InnocentBystander - Mar 19, 2010 at 12:37 PM

    (sarcastically) Once again proving that Cardinals fans are the best in baseball!

    Moscow Mills?
    I see a horde of collective farmers scything away to create the logo of the Red Menace.
    Has Rush been alerted? Isn’t he from Cape Girardeau? How could he allow a town called Moscow Mills in his state?

    Isn’t “trash on Staten Island” redundant?
    Captcha: “glove would”. It would, indeed.

    That spaceship must have had some crazy landing gear.

    “Maybe they can rearrange the trash on Staten Island landfill to make a Mets logo.”
    .
    Or a starting first baseman.

  18. BC - Mar 19, 2010 at 4:08 PM

    Or a general manager.

    I am with jwb, as a Cubs fan, I find that incredibly cool.
    .
    captcha phrase ‘crowbars forward’ which sounds like words to live by.
