New video scoreboards coming for Carolina and Dallas

New Dallas Cowboys stadium opens tonight

Country star George Strait opens the new $1.15-billion Dallas Cowboys stadium tonight. Earlier this year we gave you a preview of the video scoreboard, and in the past month a few videos of the screen have been published online.
