Results based on closest via driving directions to the stadium on Google Earth. 1 didnt have a real Driving location so it's answer is by closest via google earth's "ruler". I know some of the truly dedicated sporcle people might get this in like a minute, but I put 3 minutes so some of the more human quiz takers can take an extra guess at some of these.
Apr 1st, 2010 at 04:02 GMT
Interesting game. I like the idea. You should make it so people have to guess in order, and I'd say to add an extra minute. Nicely done though.
Apr 1st, 2010 at 05:43 GMT
Soldier Field, where Bears play is closer to Willis tower than United Center
Apr 1st, 2010 at 05:45 GMT
Please make the numbers on the billiard balls easier to see. Throws people a little off.
Apr 1st, 2010 at 05:59 GMT
While # 3 is correct, you have the distance wrong. The team plays in a different arena now four miles away.
Apr 1st, 2010 at 06:42 GMT
Hoover Dam being #9 threw me off.
Apr 1st, 2010 at 07:02 GMT
the billiard balls for numbers were a nice idea but they dont work if you can't read them
Apr 1st, 2010 at 07:27 GMT
That was HARD.
Apr 1st, 2010 at 09:39 GMT
Soldier Field (where the Chicago Bears play) is 1.6 miles from the Sears Tower.
Apr 1st, 2010 at 11:30 GMT
You used the wrong "than" on the Hoover Dam one.
Apr 1st, 2010 at 12:19 GMT
I clarified these were based on driving distance, though Willis Tower may be geographically closer to the Lake and Soldier Field, it is kind of an awkward route, making it's "Driving Distance" further than the United Center, which is just a straight shot down Madison Avenue.
Apr 1st, 2010 at 13:14 GMT
Fun and creative quiz! I could have used one more minute though, just because it takes some time to recognize the landmark.
Apr 1st, 2010 at 13:29 GMT
I believe Bridgestone Arena (where the Predators play) is closer to the Grand Ole Opry than LP Field (where the Titans play).
Apr 1st, 2010 at 13:55 GMT
I have to agree that another minute would be better. The time limit might be about right if it was easy to tell what all of these locations are, and where they are geographically, and so we just had to guess which stadium was closest. But as it is, it takes time just to figure out what some of these places are (and what numbers are on the balls.)
Apr 1st, 2010 at 14:17 GMT
regarding the billiard balls comments, is it really that hard to count 1 2 3 to tell which is which?
Apr 1st, 2010 at 15:14 GMT
The Canucks foiled me from getting a perfect score. Doh!
Apr 1st, 2010 at 16:20 GMT
Good idea, but some of the numbers are weird. I also couldn't see some of them
Apr 1st, 2010 at 16:55 GMT
The ones on the right were cut off so I couldn't see a few of them.
Apr 1st, 2010 at 18:07 GMT
Technically the Buffalo Bills also have a home game at the Rogers Centre, which is where the Blue Jays play.
Apr 1st, 2010 at 18:27 GMT
I don't care what Google tells you, I live in Chicago and I don't care if you drive or walk Soldier Field is closer to the Willis Tower then is the United Center. Either accept both or change that one to something else.
Apr 1st, 2010 at 18:45 GMT
@voljtw - I initially thought the same thing, but I was thinking about the Ryman Auditorium (basically right across the street from the Predators) rather than the "new" Grand Ole Opry out on Briley Parkway. I suppose that one is a bit closer to LP Field.
Apr 1st, 2010 at 19:17 GMT
According to Google, the Marlins stadium is slightly closer to the Everglades than the Heat's arena...and they're both much closer than the distance listed. And yes, the billiard balls really are that hard to read. Despite the criticism, I did like the quiz. Very inventive.
Apr 1st, 2010 at 19:59 GMT
Good quiz, how about Empire State Building instead of the World Trade?
Apr 1st, 2010 at 20:24 GMT
Good quiz. A little tricky on the Chicago one, but I guessed Blackhawks after Bears so it didn't matter. You could easily do another one with say Churchill Downs, the Lincoln Memorial, the Brooklyn Bridge, Alcatraz, etc.
Apr 1st, 2010 at 20:36 GMT
Cool quiz, but I think more time is needed. It's nice to have some time to think about each one instead of just being able to go through it once.
Apr 1st, 2010 at 23:23 GMT
Added an extra minute, changed it so the billiard balls are easier to see. I am from Chicago, and that's why I made sure to clarify "Driving Directions". United Center being straight West of Willis Tower makes it easier to drive to, because Soldier Field is half a mile South and turning on One Way Streets as well as going under Lakeshore Drive make it a further drive, the directions on google earth were about a half mile in favor of the UC. However, since most Chicagoans know Soldier Field is an easier "walk" from Willis, Ill change it so it accepts "Bears".
Apr 2nd, 2010 at 02:01 GMT
Nice idea. Being pedantic now, but the Grand Ole Opry is the name of the show not the building- if you mean the building its performed in currently you need to make sure its called the 'Grand Ole Opry House'. The Grand Ole Opry in some winter months is performed at its original venue The Ryman Auditorium (aka the mother church of Country music, a far superior place to the current venue)- which would then mean the Nashville Predators would be a correct answer. The simple addition of the word 'House' would iron out this problem! Sorry to be such a pedantic knob!

its way to hard to see the difference between mt st helens and mt mckinley and also groud zero pic is confusing to notice, and im from new york
Apr 6th, 2010 at 15:06 GMT
Clever quiz. Still could use some more time. Quiz is challenging enough w/o time constraints.
Jun 10th, 2010 at 14:52 GMT
you should put the white house or the marines putting up the flags or something in D.C.
Oct 10th, 2010 at 15:36 GMT
Mapquest shows that the driving distance from the Alamo to the AT&T Center is 3.43 miles. It's about a mile from the Alamo to the Alamodome - but the Spurs havent played there since 2002.
Apr 5th, 2011 at 14:59 GMT
Interesting idea for a quiz, but a few of those aren't exactly well known or easily identifiable landmarks (I had no idea what numbers 5, 8, 11 and 13 were and I'm very good in geography). Also, when I opened the quiz, I expected all the landmarks to be in the city of the sports team in question, sticking Mount Rushmore and the Hoover Dam in there made it quite challenging to think of what the answer could be.
Jun 4th, 2011 at 05:00 GMT
Wow I got lucky on a few but I got all of them right.
