Lucas Oil Stadium lands on Google Maps

Over the past few years, Google Maps has brought plenty of the world’s exterior locations to the rest of the world’s fingertips.

Google Maps is now taking the world inside sports facilities, starting with Lucas Oil Stadium in Indy.

“The Colts organization is honored to have Lucas Oil Stadium selected by Google Maps to be the first sports venue featured in a 360-degree interactive photo tour,” Colts COO Pete Ward said.  “This imagery gives us the opportunity to share our home, an award winning state-of-the-art facility, with Colts fans around the world.”

The images allows users to poke around the entire stadium, from the seating areas to the tunnels to the suites.

It’s a neat feature, but the fact that it’s empty makes it far less compelling that the incredible panoramic view of the inside of the Superdome, during Super Bowl XLVII.  If you look closely you’ll find Shaquille O’Neal, Michael Phelps, and Tracy Morgan.

  2. Will this allow me to view the room where the Colts pump in artificial crowd noise?

    I’d also love to see the room where the Colts brass developed the strategy to purposefully lose enough games to secure a franchise QB for the next 15 years.

  3. Sigh – still with the artificial noise thing that never actually happened. I’ve worked in the sound room in the RCA Dome and it was the technological equivelant of an 8track player sound barely work at ALL let alone artifically pumped in.

    Lucas Oil is quiet compared to the Dome because it’s twice as big and doesn’t have the teflon roof which reflected noise.

    The homefield advantage was lost the moment the wrecking ball hit the RCA Dome.

  4. Will they hang another cheesy “wild card game appearance” banner for this past year?

    So far they have hung a banner for every division title and even every wild card appearance, strangely. You can see them in the field-level angle.

    Does ANYONE else do this for just making it to the playoffs?

  5. The fact that Bill Polian lost his job for ‘earning’ the first pick in the draft should put to rest any theory that the Colts tanked the season. Unfortunately the trolls won’t let it go.

    Yup – when you see “highlights” of 2011 Colts players purposefully fumbling when there’s a chance they might win a critical game, it’s pretty difficult to deny.

    They may be the first 2-14 team with an asterisk next to their record.
