Dirty Tackle

DTotD: Fan does a faceplant while trying to catch ball at Morelia-Pumas match

Trying to catch a ball and maintain balance in the stands proved too difficult for one fan at a Liga MX (the new name for the Mexican primera division) match between Morelia and Pumas. As he leaned forward to try and make the grab, he lost his footing and faceplanted into the seat in front of him. He also failed to catch the ball. And the two people in front of him thought it was hilarious. As did the commentators.

Luckily there were some good Samaritans nearby to help him back up, and on the bright side, at least there wasn't a back on those seats.

This has been the Dirty Tackle of the Day: a chronicling of unfortunate events.
