Miami, FL - Viewers tuning in Saturday to see the baseball game between the Florida Marlins and the Washington Nationals may have thought they were hearing the familiar sound of vuvuzelas as a distinct buzzing sound seemed to permeate the air.
On closer inspection, the buzzing was attributed to the real deal. A swarm of bees had made a home in a section of the stadium near the visitors' bullpen. Fans sitting close enough claim that it was precisely the same sound they heard when tuning in to the World Cup soccer games in South Africa.
"Ooh, that horrendous buzzing. I thought I'd heard the last of it after the World Cup finale, but now, I get it all over again," said Dan Gitall of Miami.
Dan's wife, Donna Gitall was a little more forgiving of the sound. "As far as I'm concerned, this team needs to generate some buzz," she quipped. "The sound of crickets has been deafening," she added, referring to the fact that most nights the Marlins play, stands are relatively empty.
