What on earth are they thinking? 2

I just saw over on Ypsidixit’s blog that the Ann Arbor Convention and Visitor’s Bureau is doing one of those lame public “art” projects that every big city has done in the last few years. Various cities have done cows, horses, cartoon cars and moose. They have a couple of dozen fiberglass casts of whatever figure they choose, each one painted in some different pattern. For some reason, Ann Arbor has decided they need to follow this tired trend. So what has A2 chosen? Footballs.
This is truly an embarrassment for Ann Arbor. This is not going to draw tourists to Ann Arbor. It is just going to make locals cringe every time they see one of these things.
