The MHC pre-show bus tour drove past it 2 years ago. It was an impressive sight no matter what your opinions of it are/were...

Because of the materials it was made of, sort of similair to alot of haunt constructs, I thought?
I build using steel and concrete, a little Bondo once upon a time.

I've seen that statue many times over the years (my college wasn't terribly far from it) and most locals were not a fan of "touchdown buttery Jesus."

Old pic, this might belong in the billboard post.
Local news says $750K+ to rebuild. They're gonna make it bigger.

Our billboards are only about a mile from here.

As soon as I read this post, the news came on and since there is nothing that ever goes on where I live, it was the "top story" LOL But that would be the perfect for a billboard advertising for either a haunt or an "Adult" Store! LMAO
