Google Earth Captures the Joy and Misery at Stamford Bridge

Our friends at ONTD with another good one. Now that Google Earth has gone live in England, it seems that the engineers are having a bit of fun. Here is the image that ONTD found for Stamford Bridge:


But it gets even better. After the jump is what we found instead....


Now that's more like it! Instead of the joy of a Chelsea score, there is the agony of John Terry's PK miss during the 2008 Champions League Final loss to Manchester United.

Please note, this was not photoshopped. It was only what I found when I went to verify ONTD.

So far, nothing else very exciting. Arsenal has a bunch of crests emblazoned all over Emirates Stadium. Anfield is rather bland with no identifying marks. White Hart Lane and Old Trafford don't even get the 3D treatment.

Figures that Google would be posh Chelsea supporters, huh? Or maybe there are two factions of engineers (pro-Chelsea and anti-Chelsea) battling it out for control of Stamford Bridge.

Perhaps it would be wise to note that the second picture is from the CL final last year, right after EBJT failed to stay upright while taking his penalty.

What are the chances that EBJT gets subbed out after 118 minutes of a CL tie this season? Because I've got $10 I want to lay on that one

I like this comment from over at ONTD

OH JESUS CHRIST

Google Earth, go take a cold shower


The user's avatar is Terry and Lampard hugging from an FA Cup game, similar to this picture, yet the filename for their avatar is 'THAT girl.'
