Former New Orleans Saints running back Deuce McAllister gave the Twitter world a sneak peek at one of the new Mercedes-Benz Superdome end-zone video boards all lit up.

And it looks HUGE.

The Superdome video boards, which replace those installed when the Dome was rebuilt following Hurricane Katrina, will cover considerably more area than their predecessors. They will be high-definition and more versatile in what they can display, including fantasy football stats.

The Saints' first home game will be Aug. 26 vs. Pittsburgh.
