Still people are complaining about the vuvuzela. Of course, only people sitting on the couch at home. Here in South Africa everyone's into it. Most of all foreign fans, who blow it with greater abandon than the locals (though not as well). It brings a great sense of "other" to the games. And gives the tournament a unique feel that is sorely needed in the increasingly watered down World Cup. There was nothing particularly German or Japanese about the last couple of World Cups. Sounds like people better get used to it too, according to the AP.
