There’s still more than four months until April Fool’s Day, but Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay had some fun on Twitter on November 18.

Irsay usually tweets a message of some kind to Colts fans on Fridays prior to the team playing at home on Sunday. He often will include in his messages whether or not the roof of Lucas Oil Stadium will be open, particularly if the weather is supposed to be nice.

But on November 18, Irsay stated that the Lucas Oil Stadium roof will be open in Week 11 against the Philadelphia Eagles despite the fact the Indianapolis weather forecast is expected to feature below-freezing temperatures.

Roof OPEN on Sunday!!!!🏈

But Irsay then tweeted within the same minute that he was just joking.

Just kidding😂🤕

Irsay Jokes About Opening Lucas Oil Stadium Roof

Even though Irsay only teased Colts fans for about a minute before revealing he was kidding, the owner received quite a reaction on Twitter to the fake plans to have the Lucas Oil Stadium roof open in Week 11.

Jimothy, as a Floridian coming to Indy for my first Colts game. I would appreciate it if you would close the roof as I would not like my girlfriend to freeze. She’s not used to it and may take days to thaw. Excited for our first game though! 🐎

Irsay confirmed his own joke with another tweet clarifying that the Lucas Oil Stadium roof will be closed against the Eagles. He also teased that it wasn’t actually him that sent the original joke tweet.

The Ghost of Andy Kaufman did that!!! Not Me… I swear✌️🏈
