Google Earth is Cool

OK, So I was playing in Google Earth today and decided to fly to different stadiums.  First I flew to Fenway Park in Boston ... then to Coors Field in Denver.  Both times I was pleasantly surprised with the 3D modeling of both stadiums.

So out of curiosity I searched for Hartford.  I figured that there was going to be nothing, as I am used to Hartford being a hole where everything closes early and is ignored by Google.  Of course I had forgotten about how Google Streetview finally included Connecticut.

Well, I was pleasantly surprised.  Not only was the XL center drawn in 3D, but the Hartford 21, other buildings downtown, and the capital building (shown here) were also drawn in 3D.  Hartford still stinks ... but GO GOOGLE!
