Those vuvuzela horns may be all the rage at the World Cup in South Africa, but the Yankees won’t let fans toot, toot, toot for the home team.

When “bleacher creature” Anthony Zachariadis wailed on one of the plastic horns at Tuesday night’s game, Stadium security snatched it out of his hands.

“You gotta give me the horn,” the guard told him, inducing a chorus of boos from the bleachers. “You can’t blow it.”

Zachariadis, 27, purchased several vuvuzelas months ago for $6 apiece on a soccer Web site, with the intention of traveling to the World Cup. When the trip fell through, he decided to bring the sounds of soccer to Yankee Stadium.

Though hugely popular in South Africa, the horns — which can reach an excruciating 120 decibels — are now reviled by soccer fans around the world.

Fortunately for American sports fans, the plastic instruments of irritation are still only available online or in novelty shops. But that could change.

Even though the denizens of the bleachers are known for being loud using just their own voices, Zachariadis said he couldn’t resist trying them out at the Stadium.

“I hid them in my shorts to get into the stadium, and when I pulled out the horns, the whole place went nuts,” he said.

“Phillies fans would walk by and we would blow it in their ear,” he said. “They had a laugh — they knew we were playing with them.”

+1 for blowing at Phillies fans.

That is absolutely not the "sound of soccer".

FIFA seems to be punishing the world. Dragging its sorry ass to some third world sh*thole is causing problems everywhere.

Next time, put it someplace with hotter prostitutes. Any of the former Soviet republics would be fine.

Coming straight from the sex tv show thread - the girl's comment that "it was a lot harder than I thought it would be" was by far the most twisted thing I've thought through

I think anybody caught with one of those instruments should immediately be put in prison.

Oh yea I keep forgetting about that guy. Was he there at the last game of this season? BTW what do you think of the new Devils coach?



I think it's about time. However, I am clueless as to how good he will be. Either it will work or it wont...


With the Arnott signing, the only thing missing on the reunion tour is Niedermayer.....

Rio makes San Francisco look straight.

The only thing worse than the current position is if you take a hooker back to your room and she pulls a "Crying Game" on your ass.

Great so the best team in the world is going to get the homefield advantage too? Well looks like in 2014 everyone will be playing for second place at best.
