    Jerry, in all likelihood, always knew his television was bigger and better than anyone else's; on Monday night, he'll get documented proof.

    Before the Panthers and Cowboys kick off on Monday Night Football, a ceremony is scheduled to honor Dallas, Mitsubishi Electric and the JerryTron, as the largest high definition television display in the world, as certified by the unquestioned authority on these kind of things, Guinness World Records.

    Jerry, to be sure, is a proud papa; the main screen, which was at the center of a pseudo-controversy during the preseason, measures 172 ft by 90 ft, and weighs 600 tons.

    That is, the record breaking screen weighs roughly the amount of 2-3 blue whales.

    I know, impressive, right?

    This marks Mitsubishi Electric's third Guinness World Record.

    The ceremony, which begins at 7:00 PM local time, will consist of the screen's official certification and Lord knows what else.
