I have given up (for now) on convincing the powers that be over at the “Dodgers Media Network” to stop playing Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’” in the 8th inning of home games. I listed many reasons for this last season in this post. Despite the fact we are biting the song from other clubs, despite the fact it was written by a San Francisco Giants' fan, the crowd really seems to love it. Being a man of the people, I say let it play out until the fans tire of it. Even if it kills me, which it does.

While the question about whether or not to play the Journey tune is one based on personal taste, the subject of this post deals with a question that is based solely on tradition.
