A disgraceful O’s fan

April 06, 2010

In response to Charles Hilton's talk of the yelling "O" during the national anthem ("Stop yelling ‘O' during the national anthem" Readers respond, April 6)I can not say how disgraced I am to have someone in Baltimore feeling this way. The "O" is a sign of city-wide pride. The words to the anthem are not changed or altered to disrespect the nation. I will offer to pay Mr. Hilton's gas so he can pack up and leave our fine city if he does not like what we are about. Finally I would like to remind everyone that we wrote the song here in Baltimore, so why should we not be allowed to show our city pride?

Scott Steinbach, Finksburg
