  1. This one didn’t even require to use GoogleEarth :-)

    I think the number you’re looking for is 8721573184. Though one could argue that 8713077041 also counts.


  2. I came up with 8713869734

  3. I get:



  4. For completeness sake, this is a photo of “the Big Owe” in Montreal. Nice to see that the roof was intact for this photo. ;)

  7. So far, every eBay item mentioned is incorrect.

  8. Ah, then it must be 8704162392
    (I hope)


  9. That’s correct. Your prize is the item in question.

    I will leave it on eBay for a few more days for GoogleEarthing puzzlers to see, and then I will remove it and send it to you.

    If someone should buy it at the super-inflated price, I’ll send you half the proceeds by Paypal.

  10. Wow, thanks.

    I don’t get to see much (American) Football here in The Netherlands. Only brief glimpses of the Amsterdam Admirals, CNN sport and once a year the Superbowl (in the middle of the night).
    Of course it’s not ‘real football’, but the games and fragments I’ve seen intrigued me somehow.

    And ‘winning and losing’, I’m all too familiar with both of them.


  11. ack I came up with 8722428540, a football program with Danny Barrett

    A little late I suppose, but it was a fun doing the “investigation”
