Out of the Blue

Thanks to everyone who clarified that the horrible background noise during the World Cup games is unrelated to the tournament or the sport, but rather comes from horns called vuvuzelas, which are apparently a very popular noise-maker at sporting events in South Africa. There's a little hope, as this article (thanks ColoradoHoudini) says there is talk of banning them because of how irritating folks find them, with the captain of the French team saying it's actually hard to sleep because the vuvuzela playing begins at 6:00 am.

There's a difference between feeling proud of something your comrades have accomplished and leeching glory from the accomplishments of total strangers.

Soccer isn't magical or special, it is simply what you prefer. Other people prefer different things. Also please don't try to talk down to the fans of other sports while oozing love for soccer. It is just silly. As though soccer crowds are always nice, calm, and civil

I see nothing wrong with championing your cause or poking a bit of fun, but you are are more going for pretentious ass at this point.
