It’s the 4th of July and the Denver Broncos are celebrating by unveiling a ridiculously-big scoreboard that is one part of a $30 million upgrade Sports Authority Field at Mile High is receiving this offseason.

Kevin Patra of NFL.com has the details on the rest of the improvements at Mile High:
Other improvements include two new HD video displays above the stadium’s north end zone, a nearly 1,500-foot-wide LED ribbon display, a new sound system and more than 1,000 flat screen monitors added throughout the stadium, according to The Post.
The new scoreboard certainly is not close to matching the one the Dallas Cowboys have thanks to owner Jerry Jones’ lined pockets, but it’s a nice upgrade for a team that figures to be Super Bowl contenders once more. Speaking of the Super Bowl, Denver opens the season against the champion Baltimore Ravens at the start of September.
Denver fans will now be able to see all of Peyton Manning’s forehead on just one screen as well!
