    During the spring here at the University of Washington there is a year end bash for all the students in the dorms held at Husky Stadium. As part of the festivities there is a Dance Dance Revolution tourney with the finals played out on the big screen HuskyTron, not quite as big as this scoreboard, but cool none the less.

    That's the best set up I have ever seen! I want one. It would be cool if someone turned it on and started fraggin' during a baseball game.

    With that screen you could actually have all your design palettes open at the same time!

    I'm pretty sure that it is fake. I got this off the Indians web site. The Budweiser sign is cut off. So is those two white ones.

    They should host a tourney at Lincoln Financial Field, they have the largest screen of any football stadium, it would be great!
    It does look like a fake.:(

    the budweiser signs in the two pictures are different. and notice where the top of the thing is open like they still need to put the signs back up. looks to me like they added the screen and just need to finish putting up the rest of the board and some new ads.

    The game image itself might be a fake, but after checking out the Cleveland Indians website, they did a major overhaul of their scoreboard system before this season, so it is possible that it did happen.

    Here are a few pics from MLB.com and the Cleveland Indians.

    hhmmm... the pic looks pretty good to me. they've even got the faint lines where the screens are broken up. it could be a fake... but then why would they have the photo there? is that something that PlanetUnreal would do? or maybe it's all Matt Tagliaferri's fault...

    but i get the feeling that it is real. damn those would have been some lucky (or sneaky?) people to get to mess around with that thing. :D

    I was thinking the same thing. What a great way to do page layouts with InDesign....
