World Cup Fever!

Written by Nasrin June 18, 2010

Are you following the 2010 World Cup games? This year’s Cup is especially significant. The World Cup represents a convergence of all nations who come together for the love of soccer, or as it is known everywhere around the world, Joga Bonita (that is, the Beautiful Game!). This year, the event takes place in the historically apartheid state of South Africa.

As anyone watching the games might have noticed, the action is often punctuated by the buzzing of hundreds of vuvuzelas blown by fans in the stadium. Vuvuzelas are commonly blown by fans at football matches in South Africa as well as Brazil and other Latin American countries. They are blowing horns that emit a buzzing noise – and in some cases, hearing loss!

In any case, they cause quite an exciting revelry!

Now you can surf Spokeo while experiencing all the glory of a World Cup match through this website, that lets you search alongside the loud buzzing of a vuvuzela!

What teams are you hoping to see in the final match?
