The $480-million Rogers Place hockey arena is under construction as a new home for the Edmonton Oilers.
It's part of the $601-million Ice District project, for which taxpayers are kicking in $219 million (the hockey team is paying $143 million).
Seeing the arena from a bird's-eye view, one can't help but picture Roger from the Seth MacFarlane TV series.

There's no mistaking the similarity between the building's shape and Roger's head.
The resemblance was first noticed by Reddit user AnotherAccount003:
At first, people who responded to the Reddit post didn't believe the arena project was real.
Then the poster sent them a link to a live feed of Rogers Place under construction, and it all came together.
The Ice District has been a controversial project, with one expert calling it one of "the worst deals in Canadian history."
