City says yes to new scoreboard

The Verizon Wireless Center is about to step into the 21st century — finally.

The Mankato City Council on Monday night unanimously approved a new, four-sided, center-hung video scoreboard to be installed sometime this fall. Cost of the project is $640,000.

According to Mark Fischenich's story from Monday's meeting, officials hope to have the board up and operational sometime in November.

This is great news to the folks who attend hockey games. Replay is a huge part of the fan experience (to say nothing of the reporters'!), especially in a fast game in which big things can happen in a snap.

Of course, it probably means the Kiss Cam is coming to Mankato, too. Oh well.
