Adding Insult To Injury: Club Tijuana Carting Off Players In Millennium Falcon
Last night, Club Tijuana and Tigres played to a scoreless draw at Estadio Caliente in a match that included six yellow cards and 39 fouls. Our friends over at the always excellent FMF State of Mind blog said the game “devolved into a series of fouls that choked off any momentum” and included “long stretches of the teams mauling one another.”
But don’t worry, Esatdio Caliente had a remedy for all the aches and pains being inflicted out there: a medical cart dressed up as the Millennium Falcon.
Here’s Tijuana midfielder Jaime Gómez exiting the field in the 75th minute and doing so in fine style.

If I was the driver, I would — without fail — pick up an injured player, turn around with a twinkle in my eye and roguish smile on my face and say: “You’ve never heard of the Millennium Falcon? It’s the ship that made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs.”
And then I’d get punched in the face.
