    ‘Hooligan’ columnist is one with no class

    To the editor:

    Sharon Graves sounds like a sore loser on the Carroll County girls’ fan club in her column last week about Anderson’s “hooligans.”

    Any parent would be proud to have as their son any one of the boys who were called “roughnecks, rowdy bullies and hooligans.”

    I have watched basketball for many years and have heard the phrase “air ball” all of my life. Get real, lady.
