NFL: Jaguars Video Boards Are Way Bigger Than Yours!



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.

A great pick-me-up for the morning.  Take that Dallas and Houston...

^Yeah, I'm pretty sure I can watch the game from the Hart Bridge Expressway viaduct now.

Unless Godzilla is lying down for this one, I'm trying to figure why a horizontal object is being compared to vertical objects.  Regardless, the new video boards are very impressive.

What was this guy thinking????;)

Sorry but the Florida Capital doesn't come close to that amazing, flying-phallic-fickle-finger-of-fate known as the Trans America Pyramid Building in San Francisco, at 853 ft (260 m).

Although the tower is no longer Transamerica Corporation headquarters, it is still associated with the company and is depicted in the company's logo. The building is evocative of San Francisco and has become one of the many symbols of the city. Designed by architect William Pereira, it faced opposition during planning and construction and was sometimes referred to by detractors as "Pereira's Prick". John King of the San Francisco Chronicle summed up the improved opinion of the building in 2009 as "an architectural icon of the best sort - one that fits its location and gets better with age." Generally referred to as 'The Finger'.
