From Puck Daddy:
I watched almost all the matches in the World Cup and I have to say, the satanically spawned vuvuzela should not be allowed into ANY sporting premises EVER!!
For those that don't know, the vuvuzela is blown at full tilt for 90+ minutes. It creates an all-encompassing loud buzz that sets the teeth on edge and renders the on-pitch (ice) microphones, 70,000 fans and the commentators all mute.
After watching a match, literally, my ears were ringing. I eventually cottoned on to pressing "mute" on the TV and putting on the subtitles. You couldn't listen to a "parallel" broadcast on the radio because it suffered the same droning.
Now, y'all may be thinkin that I'm overreacting, but if you imagine 18,000 of those goddamn things in an enclosed, echo-y area and you will soon see why I fear the worst. Seriously, if it took off, you could have people going deaf in the crowd.
Should the NHL ban the use of vuvuzelas?
