With the arrival of fall comes football, hooded sweatshirts, random pumpkin drinks at Starbucks and changing tree colors.
And also, apparently, Peyton Manning cornfields.
From the USA Today, Denver-area news photographer Cody Crouch captured this image and posted it on twitter on Tuesday of a cornfield near Greeley. It’s the carefully cut-up corn version of Peyton Manning, which looks like it took an enormous amount of time and effort.
Rumor has it this Manning fellow is fairly popular around town after leading the Broncos to a 31-19 season-opening victory over the Steelers, and it had some northern fans so pumped up they drove a tractor out into the cornfields and carved a corny monument (pun absolutely intended) in Peyton’s honor.
Imagine what other sorts of agricultural tributes could be on the horizon if Manning wins on Monday night in Atlanta and beats the Texans and Raiders in the next two weeks after that. Things could get interesting in Colorado’s cornfields in the coming weeks.
MHS Take: “I want a job where I have enough free time to make cornfields in honor of Peyton Manning!” – Josh Pennock | @joshpennock
