Today, we celebrate our Independence Day.

During a fireworks show Thursday at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, the Denver Broncos and the Denver Outlaws of Major League Lacrosse unveiled a 220-feet long, 40-feet high LED video board, according to the Denver Post.

The monstrous scoreboard -- third-largest in the NFL -- is the jewel of $30 million in stadium improvements this offseason.

The home teams tweeted a sneak peek at the board earlier this offseason:

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 Broncos kick off the 2013 season when they host the Super Bowl-champion Baltimore Ravens on Sept. 5, exactly nine weeks from today.
