Honk of you’re winning
Seriously, I saw this coming but never thought it would get to this point. Now the media are reporting that banning those darn plastic horns at World Cup matches may be possible.
The most amusing thing is the suggestion that they lead the French to…well, not win.
We can’t sleep at night because of the vuvuzelas. People start playing them from 6 a.m. We can’t hear one another out on the pitch because of them. – Patrice Evra
Yeah, whatever. Gotta find something to blame for that pathetic performance. I just can’t see people wandering the halls of the posh 5-star resort the French team is staying at tooting their vuvuzelas. Sorry, don’t buy it….not gonna do it.
Not that I care for them at all. I’ve been to plenty of matches with some kid honking the damn thing in my ear. In the early days of MLS, they’d be sold outside the stadium. Then MLS decision makers decided they could make a few bucks by selling them inside the stadiums. Before you knew it, we had concession guys walking the aisles selling the damn things. Thankfully enough complaints and threats to not renew season tickets because of them finally got them removed from stadiums. Well, at least that’s the way I remember it happening at the HDC.
Those pampered Euros sure complain a lot though. It’s not like they are new. The Azteca has been buzzing with them for years. I ‘d like to see the English or French or…well, about any of the Euro teams not named Germany (based on performances so far) go into the Azteca in a World Cup Qualifier and get a result.
FIFA and the South African organizers shouldn’t be shocked by the dislike of them either. Last summer in the Confederations Cup there were negative comments made about them and FIFA responded saying they wouldn’t outlaw them. I guess one Euro country isn’t enough to protest but when the English and French start complaining….
So, if England does win the bid to host the Finals in 2018 (or 2022) can we complain about all the singing throwing our game off?
