There's only one place for a vuvuzela!
Man I swear an antacid company was behind the script for the US game today.
These South Africans are pissed!
South African Vuvuzela Philharmonic Angered
This crazy fad better not catch on down here. I hope they're banned. In the Super 14 rugby union final in Pretoria a few weeks ago you couldn't hear the TV commentary for the noise of these damn things.
They were not loved at Vuvuzela night for the Marlins game the other night either. The marlins handed out 15,000 of them and the noise caused no end of complaining and possibly caused a mixup in the batting order.
Yeah but I could not have scripted a better game to get people in to Soccer here.
Any vuvuzela blower just needs to bend over far enough for the insertion of either end.
What a match. I was doing a good job of avoiding news sources so that I wouldn't know the outcome and could watch it in total suspense on the DVR, and wouldn't you know, the goddamn AP app on my iPhone blurted out "U.S. advances to second round" when I was in the office yesterday. :tantrum:
At least I didn't know the details, and it was still pretty suspenseful.
Seen on another site..................
hell I watched that game twice. The whole floor here erupted when usa scored.
Yes but could the script have them scoring before stoppage time!! We watched the highlights last night and my still stopped with the misses.
I really hopes this helps soccer in this country, though we do have a nice start here
The dreaded vuvuzela claims its first victim: Woman bursts her windpipe 'by blowing too hard' :thumbsup:
Not bad... Not bad at all...
The Fail Whale needs a World Cup makeover for this month. Maybe they should just replace it with a graphic of the word GOAL!!!
A lot was made about the World Cup being in 3D but since it requires a 3D tv that counts a lot of people out. http://www.fathomevents.com/ is showing the World Cup semi finals, 3rd place game, and final in 3D at select theaters in CA, CO, FL, IL, KS, NJ, TX, WA.
Must see at least one game.... Oh Els.....
Some very good matchups in the round of 16:
LOL did anyone notice the Vuvuzela button that has been added to some You Tube clips? Click the soccer ball near the volume button: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0o3fQvZ-Gpw&feature=related
(Have to actually go to You Tube...)
LOL! That's humor for ya.
Knockout stages have begun. South Korea v Uruguay on now, USA v Ghana later today.
Congrats to Ghana, definitely deserved win.
We have ordered our tickets for the World Cup Final. :happy:
Ok we are not flying halfway around the world for it but we will be seeing it at a 3D theater. Later that night we will be attending the Seattle Sounders/FC Dallas match which should make for a day of soccer that will be hard to match any time soon.
