Parachuters at the Leagues Cup final on Wednesday night caused a MASSIVE freak-out in Las Vegas … ’cause people legitimately thought they were aliens!!!
Before Cruz Azul and Tigres UANL faced off for the championship at Sam Boyd Stadium … members of the U.S. Navy Parachute Team flew down from the sky with pyrotechnics strapped to them.
The problem? Not all Vegas residents knew their plan … and when they saw the jumpers in the sky — they thought Mars was attacking!!!
People were freaking out on Twitter for hours … until UNLV officials confirmed there were no aliens — just awesome parachuters.
When all the chaos in the sky finally settled down … there was a pretty good game on the pitch — Cruz Azul beat the Tigres, 2-1, to win the Leagues Cup trophy.
By the way, the Leagues Cup is a new tourney that pits the MLS’ best against Liga MX’s best … and people were fired up over the match.
But, maybe for the next one … a little heads-up on the pregame ceremonies???
