So, this isn’t a great omen for the 2016 Jets season.
A Gang Green-themed tailgate vehicle – a converted school bus emblazoned with the Jets logo and painted in team colors caught fire in Stamford, CT on Tuesday night. No one was hurt, according to the Stamford Fire Department. News 8 in Connecticut first tweeted photos.
The bus caught fire around 7 p.m., apparently not aware that the franchise usually waits until the second half of the NFL season to go up in flames.
“The fire was complicated by multiple propane tanks stored in the vicinity of the vehicle that became involved in the fire,” Stamford FD said in a statement.
Too early, Jets!
Firefighters had the blaze under control within 10 minutes, which may be record time extinguishing a problem for anything involving the Jets.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation. No word yet on the whereabouts of Rex Ryan at the time.
