Words can’t do justice to this one, so I’ll rely on the picture above to do the heavy lifting.

In short, Sounders FC goalkeeper Kasey Keller has been turned into a corn maze.

You can go check it out for yourself at the Schilter Family Farm in Olympia (141 Nisqually Cutoff Road SE). The “exhibit” will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily from Oct. 1-31.

Admission is $5 on weekdays and $10 on weekends; ages 2 and under are free.

The price covers access to the corn maze (which includes Keller trivia), the petting farm, hayrides, corn and pumpkin cannons, “round up railway” cow train, hay maze, a hay jump in a 140-year-old barn and other activities.

“It’s certainly a unique tribute and very fitting given this is my hometown and my family has known the Schilter family for years and years,” said Keller in a news release. “I honestly don’t think too many other athletes can say they’ve had their likeness featured in a corn maze, and that is what makes it really cool to me. I hope a lot of fans can make their way to Olympia and enjoy it.”
