Vuvuzelas Banned from Every Sporting Event Except Soccer

fivebeach6-300x273 The Brits may love soccer more than crooked teeth and warm ale, but they’re not fans of the vuvuzela and with their popularity spreading across England thanks to the World Cup, the officials who run Wimbledon don’t want the plastic horns ruining their precious tennis matches. And so they banned them: “We have a list of prohibited items, including rattles and klaxons and vuvuzelas will fall into that category so the message is not to bring them.” Thankfully, Yankee Stadium has already instituted a similar policy. |BBC|
