Guest post by Zack Jerome/Special to LAist

Earlier this season, I wrote a post that chronicled the absolutely awful decision to feature Journey’s karaoke jam “Don’t Stop Believin’” during the 8th inning of Dodger games. Feel free to read back for the laundry list of reasons why this song and the Dodgers go together worse than an handful of glass and a slap in the face.

Don’t put away your ballpoint pen quite yet. We’re adding another item to that list.

As reported by Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle, Steve Perry hates the Dodgers. Steve Perry, of course, is the former lead singer of Journey and a diehard Giants fan since 2002. Like most Giant fans, he must have been embarrassed to admit being a fan for more that seven years.
