Onepeat Billboard Is up in Los Angeles

The fellows over at have been raising money since early January for a very worthy cause — to put up a billboard right across the street from the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The purpose of this ad? To refute USC's claim to a dynasty. According to onepeat.com, USC was never going for a three-peat, as LSU actually won the national championship in 2003, which most people had forgotten all about. And obviously, USC didn't win in 2005 either.

Yesterday, I was notified via the onepeat.com e-mail newsletter that the billboard was up at the corner of 39th and Figueroa, directly across the street from the Coliseum. Today, I made my way down there (sporting my lucky Longhorns hat) to take a few shots:

Here is a satellite photo showing where the billboard is in relation to the stadium. The location of the billboard has been marked by the red rectangle (far right, middle). The billboard faces south. The USC campus lies approximately 1/4 mile to the north.

I also took a 180-degree panoramic shot that shows both the Coliseum and the billboard. Due to its width, I was unable to post it on this page, but try this link (309 KB): 180-degree panoramic photo of Onepeat billboard and Coliseum.

If you think the panoramic shot is neat, check out this movie of the Onepeat billboard and Coliseum (9.5 MB).
