Noisy TV

I saw a little bit of the Uruguay - France soccer match this morning and had to explain to Mom just what that underlying buzz she was hearing was and how it was produced.

Behold the vuvuzela!

In the hands and mouths of 68,000 fans at Cape Town Stadium watching and listening was like standing next to an apiarist's dream: a hundred busy beehives.

I HATED the buzz. It reminded me of bees and I went bonkers after about 20 minutes of it. I wish that Comcast would sell us a temporary filter for the noise. I'd pay for it. Really. I would.
