Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum is getting a big new scoreboard this season. Presumably this is to keep half the USC Trojans ticket-holders in the stadium from thinking they're watching their home games from orbit, and ensure the other half end up craning their heads upward to take a look at the shiny new board
After the jump, the actual photo, plus more specifics on the board.
Specs: 6000 square feet (150 feet wide x 40 feet tall).
Location: West side of the stadium (opposite the peristyle, where their current, tinier scoreboard is situated).
Segments: Live game-action, replays, down, distance, other pertinent features (SPONSORS!).
The Coliseum is one of the unfriendliest places on Earth to watch a football game. The Romans could have put lions in the stands at the original Coliseum and it wouldn't have been as unfriendly. Hopefully, this should make the experience a little better, without too much neck strain for all involved.
