These images of ski jumps stitched into American stadia fascinate me. Stadiums get used for all kind of things outside their everyday use. Anfield has held boxing bouts, tennis matches, concerts, ice hockey all kinds of stuff. But this seems a bit more extreme. I like the idea that they just appeared over night and one unsuspecting Dodgers fan turned up to see a game and found this.

I tried to get Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards to give me his tuppence on this, but his people said he wasn’t available.
