According to the Washington Times, the Verizon Center will be getting a brand new high definition scoreboard. The old scoreboard was pretty annoying and didn’t really give any detailed information. From what I recall, it showed the following:
- The 5 players in the game, (by number) with their point totals & fouls (usually somehow wrong): Maybe the new one can do assists & rebounds, or show ALL players scoring. Maybe Brendan Haywood missed dunks.
- The score of the game: Pretty solid feature
- The time remaining: Another solid feature
- Time outs remaining, but not by number: Some system that I still may not have figured out. I think it lists the number of full timeouts, with a plus next to it if they have any 20 second timeouts left. How about a column for full timeouts and one for 20 second timeouts.
- Team Fouls: Important
Truthfully, from where I am sitting I’m going to need a giant HD scoreboard to even see any part of the game. I imagine the cell phone switcheroo game will be easier than it is now (if that’s possible) also, so overall I’m pretty excited.
Days go by and still I think of you…Days when I couldn't live my life without you
