This Is A Ominous Sign

Posted by Mike on October 15, 2008

The famous Citgo sign that hoovers over Fenway Park caught on fire this afternoon. Where was Mike Timlin this afternoon ? Which either means the Red Sox are as good as done, or they’re about to catch on fire and put a pounding on the Tampa Bay Rays. Hopefully, they didn’t call the Red Sox bullpen to extinguish the fire. From WMUR:

The world-famous Citgo sign that sits behind the Green Monster in Fenway Park caught fire Wednesday.

Two ladder trucks were dispatched to the sign late Wednesday morning. Some of the neon tubes appear to have burned, and there is damage to the frame of the sign.

The cause of the fire is not known.

The sign, said to be the largest sign in New England at 60 by 60 feet, was originally built over the Cities Service divisional office in 1940. The original neon tube sign was rebuilt in 2005 to feature thousands of LED lights.
