Do you say “home of the SOONERS!” at the end of the national anthem?
Berry Tramel wrote a column Tuesday about ending the national anthem with “and the home of the SOONERS!” That column has more than 500 comments. He wrote a blog, too, with reader suggestions on how to fix the anthem problem.
Bob Stoops talked about the national anthem at his Tuesday press conference with Air Force coming to Norman Saturday. He said the best way to show appreciation for the military is refrain from the OU tradition of singing “home of the SOONERS!” at the end of the national anthem.
“Hopefully, the people singing ‘Home of the Brave’ can be louder and stronger than anybody singing ‘Home of the Sooners.’”
So what do you think? If you go to the OU football games, are you one of the people who say “home of the SOONERS” at the end of the anthem? Or do you say “home of the Brave”? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
Here are a few of the letters to the editor we’ve received.
