NFL: Jaguars Video Boards Are Way Bigger Than Yours!August 7, 2014 18 comments Print Article
The Florida State Capitol may be the country's largest phallic symbol but it will take more than Viagra to stretch it out to the length of what Everbank Field is packing this season. Here are a few "big" icons around Jacksonville and the globe that don't fare well when sized up next to Everbank Field's new 362'-long video scoreboards.
Taj Mahal - 240'
The Taj Mahal is widely recognized as "the jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces." Every over-budget public project in America is compared with it but at $63 million, Everbank Field's new toys may be just as expensive.
CSX Building - 253'
When Atlantic Coast Line Railroad opened what is now the CSX Transportation Building in 1960, it signaled significant change in the transformation of the downtown riverfront. With Shahid Khan and the Jacksonville Jaguars now eyeing the shipyards, these video boards could end up only being a start of a new 21st century riverfront transformation.
