Sports Isn't a Vacuum

June 26, 2004

I appeal to all sports fans with a simple question: When did the word "suck" become G-rated? I feel it is offensive, debasing and reinforces unsportsmanlike behavior. We gave up our season tickets to the Kings because of raucous behavior and language (and this was tough; I played ice hockey in college and love the sport).

Let's keep a clean image and replace foul language and ill spirit from the stands with positives: Go, Dodgers, Go. And bounce those raunchy T-shirts.
