Seriously… who thought “Hey let’s take the most OBNOXIOUS part of the World Cup and bring it to America!”?
It went from annoying to obnoxious to “Do these brats even have parents?”
But here is the kicker. The kids throwing them didn’t look they were enjoying doing it.
They had a bored expression on their face as they threw it. And the explosion was a dull “snap.” They seemed to be saying “Whatever” as they listlessly threw them to the ground.
So why did they keep doing it? It wasn’t fun and NOBODY was enjoying it. Was it the strange obligation to have crap explode at a Chinese event?
Which brings us back to the vuvuzelas.
Are the people blowing them enjoying it? Is it fun to blow a horn for hours at a time?
There MUST be a point where the thrill of sounding like a bee wears off.
At least at the World Cup there is the excuse of this being a South African tradition.
They are NOT a Florida baseball tradition. Having a low payroll is a Florida baseball tradition.
