Poll: Should vuvuzelas be banned from the World Cup?
If you’ve watched a single minute of this year’s World Cup then you’ve noticed the obnoxious blowing of stadium horns known as vuvuzelas. These things make a sound that leaves you wondering if the seven plagues have begun. There’s no question that it distracts from the television viewing experience, and I can only imagine actually having to hear these things in person. Anyway, the blowing of these horns has become quite the controversy as announcers and players alike have expressed their frustration with the noise. Frenchmen Patrice Evra went as far as to blame the vuvuzela for France’s poor performance (of course he is French). On the other hand, it’s tradition. So the question is, should South Africans be able to practice their own tradition on their own soil, or should we put a stop to this foolishness?
