Bird’s Eye View Contest

Last week’s contest was won by waguy. It was the Bank of Greece in Athens.

Just as a reminder, each contest picture is related to something happening in the news. Also, the view can now be from any direction. Here’s this week’s, good luck!

    It looks like a neighborhood near the college where I attended as an undergraduate. All the big old victorian-era houses had been divided up into tiny student apartments. I spent about a year and a half in one of those apartments.

    Neyland Stadium is a great place to watch a college football game. When I was in school there, they provided lots of very cheap tickets to the students who filled the stadium. When I attended, the stadium housed some 97,000 attendees, but I’ve heard it’s been expanded to hold more now. Of course, there aren’t any professional sports teams in town, and until the Tennessee Titans you had to travel through at least one other state before you could find a pro football team – so college ball was THE game in town. Lots of pagentry, too – Tennessee Walking Horses trotting down the field during the pre-game activities, the bands are good, etc. And “Rocky Top” has to rate as one of the best victory songs to sing after each score.

    In contrast, the Univ. of Washington charges it’s students quite a bit more to attend games, and fewer student tickets are available. Priority is given to the alumni and non-students who pay for season tickets which help pay the bills. With lots of other sports options in town, there just isn’t the same level of committment or energy among the fans.
