ESPN turns down the volume on World Cup vuvuzelas

Here is a story I just wrote about vuvuzelas and ESPN's take on them.

Key points:

1. ESPN has indeed turned down the dial on the incessant beehive-like background noise to allow its announcers to be heard, much like it does with NASCAR engines.

2. ESPN officially is in favor of the vuvuzelas' presence and has not and will not lobby FIFA to get rid of them.
