NPSL team hosting 'Luis Suarez Fang Night' after latest biting incident
One minor league soccer team in Texas is wasting no time in capitalizing on Luis Suarez's latest apparent moment of lunacy.
The Fort Worth Vaqueros, a National Premier Soccer League team, is hosting Luis Suarez Fang Night on Sunday for its match against Dallas City FC. The first 50 fans who show up to the club owner -- and NPSL commissioner -- Michael Hitchcock's pre-game barbecue will apparently receive fangs and gain free admission into the game, as will any fans who come with fangs of their own.
“The World Cup can be filled with magical moments of skill but the pageantry of the tournament also includes those ridiculous moments of absurdity that add another layer of color,” Tobias Xavier Lopez, Vaqueros director of business operations, said in a team statement. “Luis Suarez just joined Maradona’s ‘Hand of God’ goal or Zidane’s headbutt in the lore of wonderfully outrageous moments.”
