Fall means football. It also means corn mazes on the many farms around our area. And one local farm has done a masterful job of combining the two.
Hurricane Hill Farm in Chester County (hhfmaze.com) features a five-acre corn maze that offers a salute to your favorite world champion football team, as you can see looking at this aerial view:
That’s the most majestic corn maze I’ve ever seen. The only thing missing is a "Philly Special" section, although I'm not sure how that would work.
The farm also offers a smaller, easier maze for kids. It’s called, appropriately, “The Underdog.”
The maze is open Saturdays and Sundays from Sept. 15 through Nov. 4.
More on the Eagles
Yes, we’re missing our nightly puck drops, tip-offs and first pitches. But, don’t forget our beloved mascots of Brotherly Love also affected by the pause in the sports world.
As we do our best to pass the time, let’s look back at Gritty, Franklin and the Phillie Phanatic’s Instagram feeds for isolation inspiration.
*Swoop, we love you — we just have ways away before kickoff. Plus, you also don’t have an Instagram.
Have a photoshoot
Franklin ‘Fit Check
Put that self-timer on your phone to good use.
Just be mindful of what you decide to post.
Have a dance party
Dance like nobody’s watching.
As much as we love a properly executed Kid ‘n Play, maybe pass on the dance duets. Or maybe take a page out of Matisse Thybulle’s book, Franklin.
Chat with your Pet
They don’t require toilet paper and are pretty good listeners.
Read a Book (Or Two)
Follow along with Tobias Harris, if you’re feeling up for it.
Design a tattoo
Perhaps modeled after some of our furry mascot friends?
At Home Makeover
Try out a new look or two for your post-isolation debut.
Hopefully, you’re friends will be supportive, too.
Find your zen.
Maintain Proper Hygiene
We would not recommend hiding in a trashcan during this time.
Practice Social Distancing
A+ for content, F for social distancing.
Clearly, they need to work on that — but hopefully now you have some ideas to fill the days.
Stay safe out there, folks.
Is there anything more Philly than a Philadelphia Parking Authority violation?
There is no greater sadness than walking out to your car, spotting that slim white and blue envelope on the front window from the distance, and just knowing it signifies: they got you.
To those of us whom have fought this long battle, we salute you. While the PPA may have temporarily suspended some of their violations, we know it's only a matter of time before they emerge back and stronger than ever.
So, we've decided to create this handy little quiz for you to determine your Philly athelete personality, depending on the type of violation you will likely recieve next.
