Default ever "play" google earth?

I had seen this a few times on google earth fan sites. People find something on the earth and post a screen shot and then other people have to find it. Since we have bored office peeps on here :)

It should be unique/famous/obvious by some means. Easily distinguishable I think is the right term here.

This is a place I learnt(center of pic) of during a recent trip I made out of state.

I stayed at the place in the Top center of the Photo.

Maybe this zoomed out one will help. Notice the stadium on the top right of the photo.
