If you plug the small end, how much beer can it hold?

No the time to invest would have been yesterday. Now you are just going to be paying inflated prices for them.

Another reason to ban . . . fourth "not a soccer fan" today says "What's the deal with those horns? They're so annoying."

forget the earplugs, get in on the ground floor with a hearing aid company, then wait 20 years. Step 3: profit!

Look, if they were serious about banning incessant, annoying, monotonous noise John Harkes would be on a plane back to New York.

Ok we'll embrace your culture of 10 cent plastic horns. But we'll also embrace never having another major sporting event in Africa. Great job!

Nice, Devil!

I saw a girl with giant headphones on during the Italy game to protect her ears...

I can't be the only one who remembers that this used to be the familiar sound of LA Galaxy games back in the old Rose Bowl days. It wasn't as constant as it is in SA but these games sure bring back memories for me. I kind of like it.

So this wonderful instrument is part of their "culture", huh? I guess that doesn't say much for their culture.

Call me crazy but I hardly see anyone in the stands blowing on those things. It would seem impossible to keep that harmony everyday of every game. I think it's something that is played on the sound system.
