Vuvuzela

One thing that observers of the 2010 FIFA World Cup won't forget is the noise from those ubiquitous vuvuzela (plastic horns).

There is even a debate about it - see AtlanticWire.

The question is, which of the two teams is the sound (or noise if you prefer) supporting?

Now it has started and it's a bug, there are a couple of petitions online to ban the vuvuzela from the World Cup. Here's one:
