Florida Marlins "Vuvuzela Night": Disaster Of Biblical Proportions
"The Marlins, Rays and umpires seem to agree on one thing about Saturday's game - they didn't like the vuvuzela-like horns that were given away by the Marlins to the first 15,000 fans.Vuvuzela giveaway night was a disaster of Biblical proportions, it made the infamous Disco Demolition Night that took place 1979 at Comisky Park in Chicago look like a hippie peace and love picnic.
'That was the worst handout or giveaway I've ever been a part of in baseball,' said Dan Uggla, who wore earplugs. 'This isn't soccer. I know the World Cup is going on but this is baseball.'
'I really believe the horns should be banned from Major League Baseball,' said Rays manager Joe Maddon." Read more
Baseball players, managers and umpires rarely agree on anything, but they were unified in their hatred of the vuvuzelas.
If there's a hell I imagine that a demon carries a hot poker in one hand, and a vuvuzela in the other. Why a professional baseball team would give away Satan's toys is beyond comprehension.
I can't wait for fans who lost their hearing to start filing their lawsuits. I hope the Florida Marlins go bankrupt!
The Marlins lost the game in 11 innings, maybe there is a God in heaven!
The Commissioner of Baseball needs to immediately ban vuvuzelas from every major league ballpark.
