We love us some sports here at YesButNoButYes. Hell, we even have friends who love sports and rub our noses in the fact that their knowledge and trivia of the genre is so vast that it makes us look like a three legged dog getting dragged through an obstacle course. And, it turns out, so do all of you, based on the number of responses we got to our last From the Air challenge. Never one to let a good thing die, we're exploiting this for everything we can. This time, instead of looking at satellite images of stadiums and arenas, we're going for the less traditional venues. Let's see if you can tell the venue and what takes place there.

said Farkinguy on May 14, 2009 10:37 AM.

10. Lake Placid bobsled course

said Mr. Brightside on May 14, 2009 10:39 AM.

said Echowood on May 14, 2009 10:41 AM.

I don't think 5 is Talladega. I've never been but i've driven by and it's much more remote than that. This pic is a track next to an airport it would appear, but I also don't watch enough NASCAR.

said Mr. Brightside on May 14, 2009 10:41 AM.

9. I'm going to guess that this might be a section of the Swiss Alps, the climbing portion of Le Tour de France?

said Farkinguy on May 14, 2009 10:43 AM.

Pure guess: 5. Daytona

It looks flat enough to be Florida.

said Mr. Brightside on May 14, 2009 10:44 AM.

9. Park City, UT ? 2002 Winter Olympics, wherever that was.

said Mr. Brightside on May 14, 2009 10:45 AM.

Sorry Farkin', not the climbing section of the Tour de France. Here's a hint... every one of these is in the US. W.I.A.N. got Daytona correct.

said Echowood on May 14, 2009 10:47 AM.

Nope... not Park City.

said Echowood on May 14, 2009 10:48 AM.

Yeah, I think you're right. It's probably Daytona.

said Farkinguy on May 14, 2009 10:49 AM.

6. Looks like a surf spot. Mavericks? Does HI count as a US location as you specify or is it just the lower 48?

said Mr. Brightside on May 14, 2009 10:50 AM.

another stab at 9. Jackson Hole, WY

said Mr. Brightside on May 14, 2009 10:51 AM.

Nope... not Maverick's. And yes, Hawaii does count. Also, it isn't Jackson Hole.

said Echowood on May 14, 2009 10:55 AM.

6. Waimea

said Mr. Brightside on May 14, 2009 10:57 AM.

Waimea. Ah crap. WIAN has scurvy.

said Farkinguy on May 14, 2009 11:00 AM.

Close on 6. Really close. But still no.

said Echowood on May 14, 2009 11:04 AM.

Damn, tuned in too late to participate in this one.

Except to point out that Churchill Downs is in Louisville, not Lexington. Keeneland Race Course is in Lexington.

said Tim on May 14, 2009 11:07 AM.

Pupukea?

said Farkinguy on May 14, 2009 11:07 AM.

In the words of TMNT: "Banzai!"

Continuing to throw darts at 9. Tahoe

said Mr. Brightside on May 14, 2009 11:15 AM.

Hmm...I'll try your technique. Let's try Aspen.

said Farkinguy on May 14, 2009 11:21 AM.

Close on Tahoe. This is an actual ski resort in the region.
