Hoping Thunder fans never disrespect Star Spangled Banner

Published: June 13, 2012

I've never been a big basketball fan but the Thunder is quickly changing my mind. Not only are the players talented, but they conduct themselves in a way that every Oklahoman can be proud.

I would like to thank the fans for being true fans and being respectful of our opponents whether we win or lose. Now that we're in the national spotlight, I hope our fans never relegate themselves to the level of the fans of one of our major universities and change the words of the Star Spangled Banner to accommodate the name of our team. It's embarrassing enough on the regional level let alone on the national level. Thanks again to everyone associated with “our” team.
