Week 1 of the preseason officially kicked off on Thursday night with a matchup between the New York Jets and Indianapolis Colts. And although you'd expect Jets fans to be excited about live football and tailgating, they instead chose to spend their time trolling the New York Giants, who were outside practicing across the parking lot at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center.

It started innocently enough with one random car full of Gang Green fans driving by, windows down, screaming "you guys suck!" but quickly evolved into a larger wave of Jets fans blatantly trolling Big Blue.
In hindsight, that is undoubtedly one of the reasons Giants practice was closed to the public on Thursday night. In addition to what would have been a parking nightmare, mixing Giants and Jets fan together in a non-game atmosphere where Jets fan chose to troll Big Blue instead of enjoying their own game would have had the potential for problems.
Still, even with Giants fans nowhere to be seen and no way to instigate or retaliate, Jets fans were so obnoxious that not only was it noticed by media members covering the practice, but even added to several of their post-practice reports.
The Giants and Jets will, of course, play in the annual "Snoopy Bowl" during Week 3 of the preseason. And, per the usual, you can expect Gang Green fans, head coach Rex Ryan and all of his players to take the game entirely too seriously and act as if it's their Super Bowl. It's always a very unpleasant time for Giants fans and their players, who tend to suffer at least one or two major injuries in that game every year.
