Question...Am I allowed to bring in a Vovozale (One of those horn things at soccor games)? I will sound it when the visiting team shoots a free-throw.

You know, I was wondering what the policy is on air horns?

I used to bring one to Giants games sometimes.

I wouldn't even abuse it, that just gets annoying, but it's great after certain big moments, especially after the opposing team calls a timeout or they're at the line shooting some game changing free throws.

Yea I am going to bring one in the Clippers game on 3/11/11 and I will let you know if they allowed me to bring it in. Do they still give out those blow up things that you hit together? Thanks

If someone is blowing a vuvuzela near me while I'm trying to watch the game, I'm taking it and breaking it. :?

Yes they handed out the thunder sticks to the entire arena at some point, IIRC it was right before the 4th quarter.

Better late then never I guess...

have some respect for other fans around you and do not bring an annoying obnoxious vuvuzela to the game. Its bad enough if you have a bunch of idiots with thunder sticks around you

I have to agree. They were used in soccer stadiums, but those are open stadiums and it was still annoying.

My friend brought a vuvuzela to a Devils game and was sitting all the way across the stadium, and I could still hear it.

My point was that it would be annoyingly loud for the people at that section.

Yea but It could start a new thing at the Rock. By next season a lot of people could bring one. My game is on 3/11/11 vs the Clippers. If you are there and hear it please reply on this thread and say you heard it.

Sacramento was known for cowbells! So if we're trying to get a ruckus fanbase here the few that show up need to take on some extraordinary measures.

Would love to hear them drowning out the Knick fans. My biggest fear is the next home game between the Nets and Knicks and Deron hears a packed house booing him and cheering the Knicks. That is going to be disgusting. Made my skin crawl last game... was way worse than any Nets-Knicks game at the Izod.

You're right... chainsaws! We should all bring chainsaws! That'll intimidate 'em!
