Because the vuvuzelas create a wall of sound, there has been little of the usual chanting, singing and roaring that are a staple of soccer games everywhere else in the world. TV viewers are getting increasingly annoyed and want them banned. However, FIFA President Sepp Blatter refuses to play ball, so to speak. "I have always said that Africa has a different rhythm, a different sound," Blatter said in a Twitter post. "I don't see banning the music traditions of fans in their own country." So that's that.
Fans in South Africa seem to be having a great time! Everybody here has the vuvu.
