The Tomahawk-Chopping Chick-Fil-A Cow in Action

Last week, we informed you of the Atlanta Braves’ plan to install a 40-foot Chick-Fil-A tomahawk-chopping cow at Turner Field. Now thanks to the folks at UMPBUMP, we now have footage of the mechanical moo-er in action:


Well, it’s about what we would expect a 40-foot tomahawk-chopping cow to do. Actually, it looks like it’s just waving to the crowd.

Maybe you have to be at Turner Field in person to fully appreciate the chopping cow in all her glory. But we suggest some additions to the humongous heifer to better get the “Eat Mor Chikin” message across.

Giant Cow Back At Turner Field (No, Not Andruw)

One of the best fast food chains in the country is Chick-Fil-A (We need some more out in L.A.!) And one of the most annoying sports chants (except to Braves & Seminole fans) is the tomahawk chop. So, what happens when you bring the two together?

A 40-foot mechanical cow with a bendable elbow.

The ATLANTA JOURNAL CONSTITUTION pecks up the news that a large statue of the Chick-Fil-A cow will soon be towering over the Turner Field outfield. But this will be no ordinary 40-foot cow.

Orange & Blue Tigers Upend Orange & Blue Tigers

In exciting gridiron action on New Year’s Eve in Atlanta, the orange & blue Tigers defeated the orange & blue Tigers:

Auburn Clemson Tigers

At the Chick-Fil-A Bowl, Auburn upended Clemson 23-20 in OT on a 7-yard run by Tigers QB Kodi Burns, breaking the hearts of Tigers fans. But even though the Tigers won, Tigers fans can take solace that their orange & blue-clad warriors did their best.

Unfortunately, the Chick-Fil-A Bowl is just another reminder of how corporate sponsorship has creeped & seeped into the collegiate non-playoff post-season. It’s one thing to attach your name to a game, like the Tositos Fiesta Bowl, but to swallow it hole, like a delicious chicken sandwich available every day except Sunday?

For almost 40 years, this game was known simply as the Peach Bowl. Even up until last year, the event was still called the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl. But a new $22 million sponsorship soon pitted out the Peach.

How many other corporate-named bowls can you match up with their original titles?

The COLUMBIA (SC) STATE reports that the Razorbacks have contacted the Clemson coach about their vacant coaching spot. Bowden has three years left on his current contract, but is in talks with the ACC school about a possible extension.Neither Bowden nor Clemson AD Terry Don Phillips had returned comment about Arkansas’ offer. When asked last Sunday about his future with the Tigers, Tommy replied, “I’ll stay as long as they want me.”

Bowden’s next game is the Chick-Fil-A Bowl on December 31 - ironically enough against Tuberville and his Auburn squad. Wonder how many tickets have already been snatched up by Fayetteville & Little Rock suits.It’s debatable which orange-hewed school will come out victorious in Atlanta, but with delicious chicken sandwiches all about, everyone’s a winner!

Chick-Fil-A closed Sunday

As long as they’re not playing on Sunday.
