My sports pet peeve: Sports teams who adopt “Don’t Stop Believing” as “their” song

The San Francisco Giants are up two games to one against the Atlanta Braves in the National League Division Series. In an attempt to rally their team and fans, the Giants have adopted Journey’s song “Don’t Stop Believing” as their playoff anthem. The Giants are not the first sports team to claim the song as their own…. among other baseball teams in the past include the Minnesota Twins and the Chicago White Sox. Being from Detroit, I take extreme offense to team’s who think it is “their” song, considering the song was written in Detroit and even references the city in the song. Even putting my ultimate sports pet peeve aside, the song is out of control corny. The question remains… what are some of your sports pet peeves?
