Giant Cowboys video screen inspired by Celine Dion


Next time Jerry Jones takes in a Las Vegas show, some Cowboys fans are hoping it'll be "Legends in Concert."

The Dallas owner said the giant video screens at the new $1.15 billion Cowboys Stadium were inspired by those in Celine Dion's old Caesars Palace showroom.

During the preseason, the world's largest high definition video screen sparked a fair bit of controversy when Tennessee Titans punter A.J. Trapasso booted a ball off one of the boards -- intentionally, according to Jones -- resulting in a "do-over."

Jones said he would not rehang the giant screens higher from the playing surface regardless of how many punters from the other teams work on their hang times at "Jerrytron's" expense.

When reached for comment, Dion said it was a new day and her heart would go on.

Then she asked "What is a punt?"


I used to think it would be really neat if they dropped the puck out of the scoreboard at hockey games, like in those rod hockey games some of us played as kids.

In fact, I still think it would be neat if they did that at hockey games.
