Iam writing you regarding your article "Pranks, Goofs, Revenge and the E-Street Shuffle" which appeared Oct. 6.
I am a senior at Grant High, and I am also the varsity head cheerleader. OK, so our team hasn't won a game, and yes, they've made some mistakes. But that doesn't mean they don't work as hard as other teams, and it sure as hell doesn't mean they don't have as strong of a desire to win.
We, as students, as young adults, and as athletes, are continuously encouraged to do our very best and strive to be No. 1. Being rewarded for our hard work and effort is wonderful and very necessary in terms of maintaining a high level of confidence in ourselves. Now, don't you think that losing every week offers a fair share of humiliation, suffering, and pain to each and every member of our team? I do.
Your cynical attitude and heartless comment about North Hollywood's only chance of winning were cruel and unnecessary. Why do you rate the worst teams, anyway? To provide entertainment?
