It would resemble that, but this came before that one, and is practically a bastion of western expansion.

Is it the Brooklyn Bridge?

Definitely not. The arches on the Brooklyn Bridge’s towers are pointed on top and there are two arches per tower.

I'm guessing it’s the Wheeling Suspension Bridge.

Whether a team makes the playoffs isn't comparable to whether they are above .500. Part of making the playoffs is getting the wins when you need them to get in, which Brady/Belichick always found a way to do. That's skill. Being above .500 or below .500 is just however things shake out. That's luck.

Wheeling suspension bridge?
Yeah, that's definitely it. IMO it's one of those bridges where, if you know it, you'll know it when you see it every time. The only other thing you could really confuse it with is the Roebling Bridge in Cincinnati and even then that has big differences.

I’ll submit an entry. I took this picture in 2005.

Correct! I had to look up the name of the bridge because I never knew what it was, but yes, we were in Sitka for the day in 2005 and I have several pictures of that bridge, which was obviously under construction at the time.

I thought about whether to use a more zoomed-out picture to try to make it tougher because from certain angles, the mountain in the background (not visible in the picture above, of course) might look a little like Mount Fuji to some viewers.

Since it’s been over 24 hours with no new entry, I’ll post one. This is way too easy, of course, and I really just wanted to take advantage of the opportunity to post a great bridge picture. My aunt sent this. She lives a short distance from the bridge. This was a couple of weeks ago.
