Thanks to the "Rocky" Films...

Well, I live within very close proximity of three of Kentucky's major cities, Louisville, Lexington (not a city city), and Frankfort (a small town but our state capital.) So, I'll just post pictures of identifying structures or images in all three cities:

Louisville:
Churchill Downs - http://ww1.prweb.com/prfiles/2006/09...chilldowns.jpg

The Giant Slugger Bat - http://nasignews.files.wordpress.com...ger-museum.jpg
Skyline - http://cache.eb.com/eb/image?id=95889&rendTypeId=4

Lexington:
Keeneland - http://www.ntra.com/images/track_Keeneland.jpg (broken link)
Skyline - http://pics4.city-data.com/cpicc/cfiles34061.jpg
I'd post a pic of Rupp Arena but I'm a fan of UK's arch rival so it would be sac religious (lol).

Frankfort:
Capitol - http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1369/...3c8d1b17cf.jpg

Okay, I'm sorry I can't just get these images to pop up in the post. Oh well...

The "Silver/Cinderella/Fairytale/Suspension"(take your pick) bridge in Mill Creek Park
