Silenced

Vuvuzelas Banned At Ivy League Game

Apparently the hoity-toity attendees of this weekend’s Harvard-Yale football would rather the stands stay quiet than allow the vuvuzela to sound throughout the stadium. Over 2,000 of the ubiquitous (and obnoxious!) horns from the World Cup were ordered for the end-of-season Ivy League tilt between the well-heeled rivals, but the instruments have now been banned. Harvard organizers had said they wanted to silence Yale. Yale students bought their own trumpets to show how much Harvard, um, blows. Eli quarterback Patrick Witt says the high-pitch hum would take him off his game: “If I can’t communicate in the line of scrimmage, they game won’t take off,” he said.
