I discovered this morning during my morning walk – during which I like’ ta died from the heat – that the magnificent jumbotron at Mississippi State University is finally finished and ready for the season opener on September. Also in the photo is my walking partner, Jack, who played football and baseball at MSU in the 1950s when the scoreboard was still hand operated.
It is the largest in the SEC and second largest in the nation, with the University of Texas having those bragging rights.
The sound will blow you away. They did several tests recently and my neighborhood thought we were having an earthquake. It was actually functional during the spring game in April, but the reverse side was still being embellished.
Football season can’t come soon enough for me. This summer is being especially wicked already with the heat driving everyone indoors.
