To all you vuvuzela haters: BUG OFF

After reading John Leicester of the Associated Press’ article on America’s recent addiction to complaining about the din of trumpets that are supposedly ruining the World Cup for some viewers, I couldn’t help but to blog about it.
Would you want to see a ban on some of our traditions America?
I’m not even a soccer fan whatsoever, and to be brutally honest, I really could care less who wins the World Cup.
With that said, I still back WCup officials 110% (which is impossible, I know) in their decision to tell these haters to step back.
So typical of some American’s to be judgmental of other nations or country’s traditions.
Leicester called this African vuvuzela tradition “mind-meltingly annoying.”
Leicester, if you honestly feel that way, don’t watch the World Cup, and more importantly, don’t write about it.
His argument: the sound of vuvuzela’s drown out the oooh’s and aaah’s of the crowd.
You got to be kidding me man.
And there’s talk of a worldwide movement to ban these things too.
SMH America. It’s time to move on from bickering about the simple things. Turn your volume down, you probably hate those announcers accents anyway. Are you going to try and ban them too?
