Letter to the Editor | Thursday, February 21, 2008

In response to Michael Lenahan’s Letter to the Editor (“End Juvenile Cheer,” Feb. 19), I am in full agreement with his sentiment that the “suck it” cheer is not only “unbecoming of a Domer,” but also despicable, deplorable and a slap to Our Lady’s pristine face. Lenahan’s article was a good start, however, his ideas did not go far enough. Not only should the aforementioned chant (I will spare you the awful words) be banished, but I propose that we, as the Domerist of Domers, ban all cheering against our respectable opponents. Our main concern should be focused on all of the players having fun, not on belittling our opponents. Thus, I urge all under Our Lady’s caring watch, to replace all cheers with the cheeriest of cheers – “Let’s have fun! Keep it safe!” God Bless.
