In May of last year I went on a trip to Busch Stadium to see the St. Louis Cardinals with a group of people from work. It was a fun trip. No, I'm not a Cardinal fan, even though I have attended more Cardinal games in my life than any other professional sports team. It is always nice to get away with my friends from work.

While taking a break from the game, I was walking around the outside of Busch Stadium and noticed a rather large sculpture: a giant Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Cheese & Macaroni noodle.

This year, when I went with the same group for our annual Cardinal trip, the noodle was gone. I thought I would never see it again. Until I stumbled upon it during my vacation.

Hidden behind a chain link fence at the Kraft plant at the corner of Mattis and Bradley in Champaign, IL. I thought this was a great piece of marketing for Kraft Cheese & Macaroni. Why would they want to take it away from a venue that sees 40,000 plus people every day? Could it be that too many people were climbing on it?
