The vuvuzela is not supposed to be a song, it's a sound, and it's a fun sound.
The vuvuzela is loved by millions of Africans and many other people around the world, surely they all can't be wrong.
What is the matter with you man don't you believe in a bit of enjoyment and having a little bit of fun.
I'm sure when your team scores you suddenly love the vuvuzela.
i dont think he is saying he hates it (although i cant blame him) i think its more to the point that its one tone and no braks in between and is just noise.
Bring back the sound of the fans screaming and singing with passion
So what? Stalin was loved by millions of people, so was Hitler, so was Bush... I'm not calling the vuvuzela a human being here, but just because some people like it doesn't mean it's good.
And seriously, it sounds like a million pissed bees that is out to get you. I don't know your definition of fun, but the sound of pissed of bees who wants nothing short of killing you and your family and raping the remains isn't exactly on the top of my list.
Yes, and now to bring some relevancy.
Feel free to try BHW with the constant sound of vuvuzelas! (Still a fun sound?)
search on youtube for world cup highlight lego...
for example http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2iEkp_t7CnA
Lol, being south african i would say we try and tolerate it, though you goto admit, its really annoying! But from a patriotic point of view i suppose ill try and a appreciate it as much as possible.
I for one is getting VERY distracted and annoyed with the vuvu...
Now, please don't get me wrong here.... I am ALWAYS a firm believer in the old addage of
"when in Rome, live like the Romans", BUT
when a man of the stature of Bishop Tutu says, yes lets keep the vuvu's..
then maybe I am in the wrong.... but honestly.....
while I respect the South Africans culture of using the vuvu's, then they surely should also have the mutual respect of other nations whereby they are sharing the WORLD cup, and with all the local traditions that go with it, and although it is taking place on their soil, it remains an INTERNATIONAL game, and surely the respective nations have a right to sing, chant, shout, or whatever they wish to do, besides using the vuvu's.:headache:
I am making a big deal about this because, I firmly believe that
Herr Sepp Blatter and the FIFA board do not have the b*lls to ban them, even though the legacy of World Cup 2010 is now threatened by the persistent use of the vuvu's, rather than the quality of the football.... and guess what???? the defeated teams will in time use the noise of the vuvu's made it too difficult to concentrate on their game.
So, please Herr Blatter (although I doubt that he is a member of BHW), please limit the use of these in the knockout stages. Please?
Oh, I also almost forgot, you do not have the b*alls, same as you did not have the skill set to deal more effectively with the Tierry Henry handballs incident, which allowed out French colleagues into the finals undeservedly so.
Ah well, roll on 2018.
OMG how can you possibly compare the vuvuzela a plastic horn with Hitler, Stalin, and Bush?
Most of those people just had to pretend to love Hitler and Stalin or they would be killed.
The vuvuzela is genuinely loved by millions of Africans and many other people around the world.
And as for the vuvuzela "sounding like bees that are out to get you" you've just been watching too many horror movies man.
Blatter...ehh, rich guy who doesn't know anything about football running all the rules...
The point at which FIFA gave Materazzi a Fine for being headbutted...corrupt organization.
Blatter should be removed from FIFA ASAP. They need new blood in FIFA. Allowing the vuvuzela was done for one reason only; the politically correct one. Blatter would never allow these infernal horns anywhere else in the world. These stupid horns are NOT part of their culture like he says, as they are a recent phenomen, when a white South African started mass producing them about 7-8 years ago.
Nowadays they are mostly made in China (where else?) Before that the soccer fans in South just like the rest of Africa had a lot of drums, singing and dancing in the stadiums. That yes was traditional.
As for Bishop Tutu backing the Vuvuzela; another politically correct answer. Pity Nelson Mandela is old and no longer has any say in these matters, since his words carry a lot more weight and infinately wiser than Bishop Tuto.
The South African Government/Football Federation, as the host nation to 31 other countries and thousands of foreign fans should treat its visitors with more respect by banning that ridiculous piece of plastic that completely drowns out all of the singing, chanting, the oooohs, the aaaahs, the moments of almost silence when a goalkeeper makes a fantastic save or your opponents score a last minute goal. Just 90+ non-stop minutes of millions of angry bees, blasting your eardrums with 130dB of useless noise.
4 Reasons To Enjoy the Vuvuzela
1) It brings a great atmosphere to the world cup game of football.
2) It prevents you losing your voice. Instead of shouting your head off and losing your voice you just blow your vuvuzela and you never lose your voice.
3) Folks who have never been to a game of football in their life and don't know any of those football songs, they can simply blow their vuvuzela and feel included in the event.
4) Blowing the vuvuzela is getting one over those miserable people who hate the vuvuzela, and wanted it to be banned.
england is a world cup funnie...the crap tw*ts
Police Seize Colombian World Cup Trophy Made With Cocaine
World Cup trophies, typically made of gold plated silver have gotten a makeover from Colombians using a new product...Cocaine.
Police in Bogota, Colombia have seized a cocaine replica of the trophy that they found in a warehouse close to the Bogota Airport. According to The Associated Press, Colombian authorities found the unusual statue during a routine security check.
The 14 inch statue was headed to Spain and was painted green and gold. According to anti-drug chief Col. Jose Piedrahita, lab tests confirmed that the cup was made of 11 kilos of cocaine, and mixed with gasoline to make it bendable.
"In my next life I'm coming back as a vuvuzela so I can be really annoying and still get blown constantly." -- funny or die.
I chose Itally and England in a pool and now have to cook a dinner for 4 -- and they get to pick what the menu is... horrible.
