You may think I only complain about American football but no, I also complain about the international form of the game. The World Cup started today and 18 minutes into South Africa versus Mexico I’m going crazy from that *&^& buzzing sound in the stadium. (Rose says “It sounds like a fly is inside the TV.”)
I have no other problem with this game — other than the slow action and the flopping with fake injuries – but those freakin’ horns make me nuts! (Officially, the giant plastic horns are called vuvuzelas.)
I’m not an oracle but I can already tell you what my weekend is going to look like — 6 games at 90 minutes each of that annoying buzzing heard throughout my house!!! (If you’re wondering, the World Cup includes 64 painful games total!)
Just take the horns away from the people as they enter the stadium. They aren’t little kazoos. They are GIANT horns. They can’t hide them! Michael routinely gets flasks taken off of him at the UGA stadium and yet these stadium workers can’t spot and remove the giant annoying horns off the fans!!
The upside of the World Cup is the kids do get to learn a lot about the different countries competing. Maybe we can just watch without the sound!
What do you think? Will your family watch the World Cup? All 64 games? Which is more annoying to watch: the American form of football or the international form we call soccer? How are you feeling about the super annoying giant buzzing horns?
