Saturday Night FIFA
Fanatics from far away lands
wear costumes and chant from the stands
But 'merican fellas
don't blare vuvuzelas
or get why they can't use their hands
The vuvuzela is the plastic horn that's heard droning throughout soccer matches in South Africa. Apparently the sound is driving the French players crazy.
I must be un-American, because I've contracted World Cup fever. USA just beat Algeria in overtime, winning Group C, and advancing to the final 16. Meanwhile, North Korea is rumored to have hired Chinese actors to portray Korean fans at the Cup. You don't get intrigue like that at your so-called "World" Series. Thanks to Backthrow for the title.
