When Jerry Jones built his massive behemoth of stadium in Dallas, now dubbed the Jerrydome, the crown jewel was a massive high definition screen that is still the largest HD TV in the entire United States. But Jerry Jones is seeing his football team outdone on the field by his brothers in Houston, and now those same brothers are coming for his crown.
The Houston Texans are planning to build not one but two of the world’s largest high definition video monitors for Reliant Stadium.
“Our game experience is consistently rated as one of the finest in the world and these spectacular video boards will help us elevate to an even higher level of performance for our fans,” Texans President Jamey Rootes said, via Dave Zangaro of CSNHouston.com.
The motivating factor behind building the monitors is the fact that the Texans want the to win the bid to host the 2017 Super Bowl. Houston hosted a Super Bowl before, but that’s because all new stadiums get christened with a Super Bowl. If you want another one, you’ve got to buy a prettier dress. The Texans are building a new dress which will be the size of 3,000 40-inch HDTVs.
If the Texans are able to pull this off as planned, they will house not one of largest television monitors in the world, they’ll house two of those bad boys in one building.
Everything really is bigger in Texas.
