FanCam captures Rupp Arena


On Saturday, about ten minutes before tip-off of one of the most anticipated basketball games in Lexington, a gigapixel camera was brought out to center court to capture a sweeping image of Rupp Arena. If you haven’t checked out the huge picture, you should.

According to FanCam the camera is capable of capturing 5-billion pixels in ultra high-resolution while rotating 360 degrees for an interactive image. You can tag yourself and send it out on Facebook or Twitter for the whole world to see.

But I’ll save some of you the trouble. I did a little analysis on my own, and here’s what I found.

Some of you recognized the FanCam and did a little posing. There were plenty of Three Goggles in the crowd.

There were even some Grandma Gogg’s


Must have been a long night pre-gaming; he looks ready for bed.


While this guy heading down to the eRUPPtion Zone just rolled out of it.


What the — is that a polar bear in the student section? I know we have the Wildcat and Scratch mascots, but I’m confused here.


Smile, you’re on candid camera!


I only have one question. Who are you rooting for?


Yes, thank you mom for these prime seats at the game of the century.


Awwwwwwwww. Smooches!


Look at Matt Jones being famous. How did he get credentials and not me?


Since we’re pointing out famous people on KSR, that may or may not be me in the center-right of this image. And by may or may not, I mean it is. But I’m not sure what’s caught my attention.


Maybe it was this guy up in the rafters who has a sweet beard. 16-beard

See something in the FanCam I missed? Let me know, send me a pic on Twitter @StuartHammerKSR. And if you’re in one of the pictures, know I don’t mean any harm. It’s all in good fun.

    The tag of Benjamin Button was the best. Some of the tags were removed, but hilarious.

    Who are you asking to smile for the camera? The boy or the lady behind him.

    Saw the Panda at the game. What’s up with that?
    There are no rules keeping people from wearing mascot costumes?

    Could lead the Erupption zone to be full of cross-dressed cardinals and other stunt mascots.

    I was jokingly doing the John Wall dance in section 213 row m aisle seats. Kinda glad it caught me now, much better than picking my nose.

    Most of the tags have been taken down but there were some pretty hilarious ones up today. I saw an Adolph Rupp, Benjamin Button, Chris Farley, and something very inappropriate about a Lexington news personality.

    Is the bearded guy the same bearded guy that does the Louisville Ironman wearing jorts? He’s a beast!

    Take the picture of the poor nose picking kid off. He’s going to be ridiculed and bullied.

    #7 – if there’s a man reading an invisible newspaper, we found his match – the smooches picture above has the newspaper, but not the man.
