"My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard!"

Aww, except Turner Field doesn't sell the milkshakes. :) Okay, so! As you've all heard by now, Chick-Fil-A has installed a 40-foot robot cow that does the Chop at Turner Field. The cow is totally creepy, and after seeing him in person last night, I do not love him. Let's hear what the Braves had to say...

A 40-foot cow watched Bobby Cox's every move.

Cox was warned about the bovine, but the Atlanta Braves manager still wasn't prepared for his first look at the Turner Field newcomer that seemed to return the stare.

“Holy cow!” exclaimed Cox.

Well, Cox said something close to that as he climbed the steps to the dugout Friday to check out the 7½-ton creature.
I think it's pretty cool,” said catcher Brian McCann.
(Someone's been training at the Jeffrey B. Francoeur School of How To Win Fans and Influence The Media.)
“Tacky,” [Chipper] Jones said.

Well, see for yourself.

For those of you wondering, the CFA sandwiches are $4.50 each. They also have waffle fries, brownies, and cheesecake, and I'm sure some other things, but I was walking by pretty quickly and just remember the pictures and the price of the sandwich. There is one CFA in the Golden Moon Casino Level and another on field level, at approximately section 137/139.

Yeah - that's a little creepy. Cute idea, but that is way too big.
