ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Welp, there’s a headline I never expected to write. The last few days, we’ve seen a trend develop, and it’s not a trend I can say that I ever saw coming. First, there was a crop maze tribute to Jerome Kersey. Then there was a corn maze tribute to Marc Gasol. And now, the Sacramento Kings have joined the crop maze trend.
According to Kings.com, the 3.5-acre Kings logo is part of a regional corn maze at a pumpkin patch. Writes Kings.com…
“This is a fun and unique way to both salute the best fans in basketball and celebrate our region’s world-class agricultural leadership,” said Kings President Chris Granger. “We’re looking forward to hosting special events and bringing Kings entertainment and energy to the maze for fans of all ages.”
In 2007 and 2014, the maze was certified as the world’s largest maze by Guinness World Records. This year’s maze will be 44 acres large and will take approximately 90 minutes to complete. Last year’s maze had thousands of visitors over the 51-day season.
Which NBA team will be the next to join the corn maze trend? I’m not sure, but this is clearly a trend.
