Leave the vuvuzela at homeBy
A few weeks ago, few Americans knew what a vuvuzela was. The hard plastic horn that resembles a beer funnel often makes its presence known in South African soccer games, and it took the World Cup to introduce the droning sounds to a nation not so keen on having its ears assaulted. The backlash, it seems, has already begun. During last night’s Yankees-Phillies affair, security guards in the bleachers confiscated a vuvuzela from one endearing fan, and The Post speculates that the Yankees have pretty much banned them outright as the team’s policies say that fans are not permitted to “blow horns and all other distracting noisemakers.” My ears approve.
