ATLANTA -- It was bound to happen.
On Monday, Atlanta said good-bye to the city's historic Georgia Dome as it was blasted into a pile of rubble and smoke.
MULTIPLE ANGLES | Watch the Georgia Dome implosion
The whole city was watching, including a curious MARTA bus driver who saw the implosion beginning and rolled to a stop so they and passengers could watch the building come tumbling down. Unfortunately for one Weather Channel cameraman, that happened to block his perfect shot of the implosion.
The video has since gone viral, and, of course, it's become the Internet's latest meme.
The MARTA bus is the new crying Jordan.... https://t.co/hWIh1LUrov— Pat Doney (@PatDoneyNBC5) November 21, 2017
Folks couldn't get over the bus' perfect timing.
The one time the MARTA bus is on time— julie b (@reSISTERhood9) November 20, 2017
And wondered about that cameraman's health.
Also, that MARTA bus had a PSA on the side about how to spot a stroke. Which the camera man was having.— danisse (@danisse) November 20, 2017
They also couldn't help but take shots at Atlanta's other public transit methods.
This MARTA Bus got more attention in one day than the Atl. Streetcar has in almost 3 years. https://t.co/6QngOja1uF— Mark Owens (@marko6262) November 21, 2017
Even other Atlanta/Georgia-centric Twitter accounts poked a little fun:

Others wondered if it was the work of Atlanta's sports curse.

Today's Georgia Dome implosion isn't the first time the MARTA bus had terrible timing pic.twitter.com/pNSyY5fPQf— Sports Illustrated (@SInow) November 21, 2017
The bus even has its own parody Twitter account, because, of course. The good news is that the MARTA bus apologized and seems to have been forgiven by the Weather Channel. So it looks like no hard feelings.
Hey @weatherchannel, sorry about that.— Georgia Dome Implosion Bus (@GeorgiaDomeBus) November 20, 2017
