Townsend Bell gets up close and personal with Big Hoss

NBC Sports analyst and IndyCar driver Townsend Bell is the kind of guy who believes in seeing things up close and personal.

So when the Verizon IndyCar Series headed to Texas Motor Speedway for Saturday’s Firestone 600, Bell wanted to see for himself what all the fuss was about TMS’s “Big Hoss” video screen.

I mean, come on, if you’ve seen one video screen, you’ve seen ‘em all, right?

Nope, Bell actually got on a crane to get face-to-face with the screen, which measures 218 feet wide by 94.6 feet tall. In layman’s terms, that’s wider than a Boeing 767 and taller than a seven-story building.

Or to put it in layman’s terms, if you think you have a big TV in your man cave just because it’s a 50-incher, Big Hoss is a 2,852-incher!

But once Bell got up to Big Hoss’s screen, he forgot one very important thing.

Check out his tweet below to find out.
