It was only a matter of time before we heard a story of the dreaded vuvuzela wreaking havoc on American soil. The first told story took place last night at Yankees stadium.
Anthony, 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.
Just in case you’re not catching the drift of this tale, let’s just say that this won’t end well for Andy or the vuvuzela.
When “bleacher creature” Anthony 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.”
Even though the denizens of the bleachers are known for being loud using just their own voices, Anthony 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.”
“I blew on it only five or six times — for big plays,” Andy said.
Andy finally agreed to leave the game in return for not having his horns seized.
“I have been tossed from that place hundreds of times. Many times I even deserved it,” he said. “But this was ridiculous.”
And that’s the first of, undoubtedly, many tales of vuvuzelas invading sporting events here in the States. You’ve been warned.
