When I returned from the O-rena and the Magic NBA Playoff game last night I had a headache. Maybe it was a bad Pepsi, maybe the pounding the Bucks put on the Magic, or maybe it was the decibel levels of noise that once again assaulted my very being. I'm not talking about the screaming of the fans, but about the loud thumping music, the pounding of the bass, and the inane booming "voice of banality" that is the arena announcer.
