Big Jack Made From Fireplugs

Right downtown in Shelburne Vermont there is a Giant Jack (like used in the classic game of jacks, where you would have the little rubber ball and the metal peieces to pick up) made out of red fire hydrants. Makes ya wonder if there's a giant rubber ball made out of used tires nearby.
