Google Street View Is Mapping the Wells Fargo Center

Google Street View Is Mapping the Wells Fargo Center

There's a decent chance that, at some point in your Internet-surfing life, you've probably pulled the little yellow peg man onto a Google map and taken a look at a 360-degree image of your street.

How'd you like to do that with the Wells Fargo Center?

A friend of ours inside the building gave us a heads up that the Google Street View team was on site at Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday, mapping the building with these futuristic machines that likely will one day become our overlords.

The team is also supposed to walk around the exterior of the building wearing one of these.

And to give you an idea what you'll be able to see inside, check out what they've already done with Lucas Oil Stadium:

If you play around with it long enough, you can see inside the stadium, the concourse, the club boxes and even the locker room.

No word on whether the team will be crossing over 11th and/or Pattison to map the Lincoln Financial Field or Citizens Bank Park while they're here.

We'll be entertaining ourselves at Universal Studios and Sea World in the meantime:

C.J. Sapong, Union roll over shorthanded Crew

BOX SCORE

CHESTER, Pa. — Led by an offensive explosion from C.J. Sapong, the Union rode the early lead and man advantage to easily defeat the Columbus Crew, 3-0, on Wednesday night at Talen Energy Stadium.

Avenging last Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to the Crew, who are now 10-11-1, the Union snapped a two-game losing streak to keep pace in the Eastern Conference. Five points behind the Crew for the final playoff spot, the Union desperately needed a positive result to move to 7-9-5 on the season.

That desperation was on display early as the Union capitalized off some in-box confusion and an impressive pass from Sapong in the 20th minute. Jumping on an errant clear by the Crew, Sapong completed a bicycle kick centering pass to Ilsinho, who placed his rocket shot past Downingtown, Pennsylvania, native Zack Steffen for the 1-0 Union lead.

The match drastically changed in the Union’s favor in the 35th minute.

Causing a Justin Meram turnover in the defensive zone, Haris Medunjanin played the ball ahead to Ilsinho, who skillfully found Roland Alberg streaking down the right side. With his head up and the defense outnumbered, the midfielder played a perfect lead pass that broke Sapong in alone on goal. But Sapong was immediately hauled down from behind by Jonathan Mensah to earn the Crew player a straight red card and the Union a penalty kick.

Yet, the Union were unable to capitalize right away. Alberg and Sapong were caught in a heated conversation over who takes the shot with Alberg eventually lining up, despite a strong protest from his teammate. The gamble wouldn’t pay off for Alberg as his shot found the hands of Steffen and the crossbar to stay out.

Playing a type of half-court offense as a result of total possession, the Union pressed for the second goal. But it took until the 66th minute for them to get it. Off a lofted pass from Giliano Wijnaldum, Sapong headed the ball off the right post and back to himself for the unconventional goal and 2-0 Union advantage. 

It was Sapong’s career-high 10th goal of the season.

Thing unraveled further for the Crew in the 76th minute when Lalas Abubakar received a straight red for what referee Ismail Elfath deemed violent contact in a collision with Ilsinho. With room to run, Marcus Epps scored his first MLS goal in the 81st minute off a pass from Sapong and Ilsinho. The rookie finished with eight shots on goal.
