"Not now, Betty!"

With a 1-0 lead over a much better Marseille team, one Sochaux team decided to take action in an attempt to bewilder the opponents and ensure a rare victory for the relegation threatened team. So, they threw a large Betty Boop doll at Matheiu Valbuena as he prepared to take a corner kick because what else are you supposed to do with the Betty Boop doll you brought to the football match?

The doll just missed Valbuena, who was unphased by the bizarre missile. Whichever child threw it showed that they have a pretty good arm, though. 

Marseille went on to score an equalizer in the 90th minute. Clearly this was all the doll's fault.
