'Don't stop believing' hates the Dodgers

This news is a couple of days old....

But I haven't seen much reaction to this. From the S.F. Chronicle:

Steve Perry, the former lead singer for Journey, will be at Dodger Stadium wearing his Giants cap as usual when the team plays there this weekend and he will leave before the eighth inning, as usual, but not to beat the traffic.

Late last season, the Dodgers started playing Journey's "Don't Stop Believin' " before the bottom of the eighth inning every night as a rally song, and Perry leaves before they do.

"I have to," he said. "I don't want to hear it."

Why? Because Perry is a diehard Giants fan who cannot stand the fact that the Dodgers "hijacked it first" and use it to win games.

Stop playing this song in the 8th inning! The dude is a Giants fan and hates it when you play it at Dodger Stadium. Forget him and Journey! Choose another song!

I heard either on Mason n Ireland or Dodgertalk that if he comes to the stadium, we should play it every inning!

I think it's great to play when we are BEHIND at that point. (The somewhat acceptable alternative to the rally monkey!)
But it's silly to play when we are winning...

I'll listen to it every inning if they will stop the cruel singing of God Bless America tho!
Even God is saying ENOUGH ALREADY!

They should always play the song regardless of the score because it's a great song, and a great song to get everybody signing at once to.

HA HA HA! Poor Steve Perry, bet he loves the residuals! I agree, play something else!
